Abstract

© 2016, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul. All rights reserved. This paper aims to analyze how gender perspective has been introduced in the higher education curriculum, specifically in the Physical Activity and Sport Sciences degree. Content analysis and discourse analysis of 763 syllabuses from 16 Spanish public universities were carried out. Findings reveal that construction of knowledge and the several ways it can be conveyed have distinct implications on changing gender relations. The article contributes to the design of new pedagogical proposals that aim to include the gender perspective and promote social changes from higher education.
