More and more instructors want to integrate questions of gender into their teaching of engineering and computer science. But how can this be done? And where to find the time to spend on such questions? The goal of this workshop is to get to know basic concepts from gender research, to implement them as instruments for analysing technical questions, and to gain gender competency for better interacting with students.
The content of the workshop will revolve around two points:
- The embedding of technical problems in a societal context (various user groups, the history of the field and the contribution of women, the effects of technology and professional ethics, dealing with digitalisation, technology and nursing care)
- How to approach diverse groups of students in a gender-fair way (activating methods, instructions for self-study, group work, etc)
The workshop will be conducted in an interactive format, which should be fun and provide inspiration for innovative teaching. In addition to acquiring background knowledge, participants will get to know tested materials and handouts on the gender-conscious teaching of technology and on gender-sensitive didactics. There will also be plenty of time for individual questions, work on participants’ own course concepts, and discussions among the group.
