CDIO seminar: Gender and diversity inclusive engineering education. What are the challenges for CDIO programmes?

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 -
09:00 to 15:30
Lecturer / Speaker: 


This seminar aims to discuss gender and diversity issues with particular relevance to CDIO education. For example, CDIO programmes feature many team-based projects. Appropriate approaches for managing team dynamics and task selection are critical. If the team is international, gender issues may be even more critical. In addition, many CDIO programmes are a male-dominated,  in terms of student numbers as well as the culture in the programmes..

The seminar will provide an opportunity to learn insights from some leading experts in the area and to share knowledge and experiences with other CDIO educators.
