This blog is a collaboration between students and faculty at Widener University’s Center for Human Sexuality Studies. The Center trains graduate students in sexuality education, specifically the methods and content used to deliver information to people of all ages about sex and sexuality.
Here at Teaching Sex Ed Blog, we will post about the creation of sexuality education materials, curriculum, lesson plans, etc., and also will discuss the ways in which educational philosophies, ideologies, culture, and diversity impact sexuality education. Students and faculty post about theories and methodologies that inform sexuality education, and suggest best practices and by connecting them to curricula and lesson plans that exist and are accessible online, as well as by suggesting new approaches or ways of designing new programming.
In addition to providing this discussion, we also want to create a forum for sexuality educators to seek support, share ideas, and have conversations outside of traditional closed email list serves, etc.
Please join the conversation by commenting, asking questions, adding new resources, and critiquing the perspectives here at Teaching Sex Ed. You can also follow us on Twitter @TeachingSexEd, Instagram @teachingsexed, or Facebook, or contact us via the form below! We aim for this to be a dynamic and engaging community that thrives on its participants’ perspectives and the design and delivery of real life sex ed.
