Title: Computer-based design tools in engineering - steps to ensure a gender-inclusive learning environment
Author: Davidson, V.J.; Stiver, W.H.; Newberry, J.; Yuval, L.; Hayward, M.; Rohatynskyj, M.
Abstract: Our research on various aspects of student performance in a second-year engineering course which develops computer-aided engineering skills is based on the assumption that larger societal values of masculinity and femininity manifest themselves in student behaviour to different degrees in different contexts, and that particular aptitudes and inclinations which interfere with successful learning may be countered by pedagogical strategies. However, it is clear that some settings and activities are less pedagogically manageable than others.
