In this paper we report on the outcomes of the Teaching Innovation Project “Gender and Sexual Orientation: From cultural discourses to innovation in teacher training” implemented at the Faculty of Education of the University of Granada (Spain) during the academic year 2006-2007. By adopting a gender perspective, teacher trainees get acquainted with real coeducation and learn positive attitudes (cognition, affection, and behaviour) which may help to dismantle sexist and homophobic discourses which provoke gender or sexual orientation discrimination. The participants of this project are 530 students registered for the following degrees: BA in Teacher Training: English as a Foreign Language; Physical Education; Audition and Language. Below, we describe the different gender implementations in the chosen courses: English as a Foreign Language for Physical Education Teachers, Foreign Language (English), Developmental aspects of thought and language and Psychology of Physical Education in Primary School.

Keywords: Teacher Training, Gender
