12th Scientix Projects' Networking Event:
GENDER AND INNOVATION IN STE(A)M EDUCATION
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.
- To share experiences and initiatives addressing gender aspects in science education through innovative ways.
- To reflect upon the role of arts-based approaches for combating gender stereotypes and bias within science and beyond.
- To provide a platform for exploring how arts-based approaches provide both an opportunity for renewing science education as well as tackling gender bias in educational as well as collaborative contexts.
- Gender and Innovation in STE(A)M Education, welcoming presentation by Marina Jimenez, European Schoolnet.
