The influence of gender in shaping every aspect of teaching and learning is pervasive. Research into gender and education remains undeveloped in Hong Kong, however. We are proposing the establishment of a ute's encouragement of cross- and inter- disciplinary research, it also represents a timely endeavor in the face of the implementation of the New Senior Secondary Liberal Studies Curriculum. As gender is an important theme in the new curriculum, resources on techniques and strategies for addressing gender issues made accessible to front-line teachers is much needed. In short, the 18-month-long project is expected to provide a comprehensive review of research and practices in the field of gender and education, and inform exemplars and strategies for promoting gender awareness and gender equity education across subject-based teaching and learning, and in professional training pedagogies. These will undoubtedly benefit the teaching and research of our colleagues and students.
