Current university classrooms have prompted teaching teams to consider how to address diversity in teaching and learning processes. In particular, the field of Tourism has emerged as fertile ground for the incorporation of a gender perspective as a means of challenging hegemonic tourism development. Thus, it has become a powerful tool for curriculum transformation.
In this context, a pedagogy incorporating gender as an analytical category was envisaged, aiming to develop a critical perspective among students that highlights the inequalities between women and men in tourism activities. From this approach, in the "Introduction to Tourism" course at the National University of Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands, the pedagogical proposal was based on the notion that all education is inherently sexual (Morgade et al, 2011).(1) Therefore, the classroom activities designed within the framework of the course aimed to address different subjectivities and diversities, recognizing that education should ensure that all interests, including pleasures and desires, are addressed in the academic setting.
This communication elaborates on various tools for integrating a gender perspective into the curriculum of this course. These tools include: program as a discourse genre, inclusion of female researchers in the production of academic tourism knowledge, biographical narratives from students, the analysis of audiovisual materials, sharing of regulations and academic practices related to this perspective, and the questioning of the use of inclusive language
