12th Scientix Projects' Networking Event 'Gender and Innovation in STE(A)M Education'
Location: Future Classroom Lab
Event type: workshop
Target group: educational authorities, general public, researchers, teachers
Gender aspects continue to play an important role in science education, conditioning study choices or shaping beliefs about one's own capacities and those of others. Performing arts based initiatives are on the forefront of innovative science education approaches and have participatory, dialogic and dialectic qualities to engage students in democratic and inclusive ways of learning. This workshop aims to bring together both concerns in order to explore how arts-based science education can also address gender bias and stereotypes in educational and team-collaborative settings.
