Gender education at Chalmers: How, when and where?
The project identified that since 2009, over 18 EU-projects have been funded focusing on gender equality within STEM fields and/or academia. Most examples of changes to curricula to include diversity or equality questions relate mostly to pedagogical dimensions, or adding awareness of the culture of engineering work. Only a small fraction of the examples of gender inclusion into engineering education involve changes made to the technical/engineering/scientific content of the curricula. The few examples of Gender & Technology research reaching engineering students that were found, were most often materialized through a sort of “add-on” to the education, similarly to Chalmers MTS-credits. This voids the regular education of gender issues, and there is high potential for further integration. Thus, one of the findings of the project is that Gender & Technology research have yet a long way to go to become included in curricula in Europe. Another finding is that gender stereotypes are still reproduced in many of the attempts to integrate gender into the education, and there is still much work do be done to counteract stereotypical gender roles.
