Abstract

This case study looks at a particular issue which may arise when using group work in classes with high numbers of international students; namely the segregation of groups along gender lines. A recent article (May 2013) in The Guardian Education section discusses the rise of gender segregated events in UK universities and the issues arising from these (http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2013/may/27/gender-segregation-university-voluntary-equality). The article focuses on public meetings and university society activities, but this case study indicates that segregation can be an issue too for the HE classroom.
