Abstract

Within the Humanities, female students tend to receive lower class participation marks, despite being in the majority within the Humanities’ student body. Research suggests a number of reasons for this disparity, often going back to early childhood socialization. This article explores different seminar activities that can be employed to combat this gender gap, concluding with a consideration of the efficacy of the World Café to encourage all students to participate in active learning and reap the benefits of class participation.
