Gender Toolkit for Computer Sciences, 2011
The booklet presents didactic approaches a n d specific settings for lectures. E.g. programming lessons who do not only apply for those who are used to learn by trial-and-error and to teach themselves. But also for students without existing knowledge in programing and different needs.
The booklet contains material for single lessons on the history of women in engineering as well as lessons on their marginalization until today. And many tipps and examples e.g. for problem based learning in computer sciences.
The gender toolkit combines the results from the GEMIS-project, coordinated by gdi-consultant Susanne Schwanzer and the heads and lectors of 4 computer science studies at the tech college of Vienna.
Holding the gender toolkit in her hand: Ulrike Neubauer, GEMIS-project leader from tech college Vienna, the deans & lectors of the studies involved, vice-director Angelika Ott (1st f.t.r.) and gdi-consultant Susanne Schwanzer (3re f.t.r.), who wrote and implemented the gender toolkit in 4 computer science departments at the Tech College of Vienna.
