"Gender-into-Teaching" at the Vienna University of Technology. Experiences and Reflections on an Austrian Project
Knoll, Bente; Ratzer, Brigitte
European Journal of Engineering Education, v34 n5 p411-418 Oct 2009
"Gender-into-teaching" is the first Austrian project to develop strategies on how to implement gender topics at a technical university. This project can really be qualified as a model for other universities and as unique in Austria. Up to now, there are many more males in higher-level positions in the university hierarchies. The--very slow--increase in women has no relation to the continuous and serious efforts of various affirmative action programmes for women. Gender-into-teaching was designed as an answer to that phenomenon. During the project, some research as well as concrete measures were carried out, e.g. an in-depth, quantitative gender analysis of the two participating faculties, a qualitative gender analysis on the faculty culture and milieu as well as gender and didactic trainings for teachers. This paper highlights the project in general as well as its results. The theoretical aims are also pointed out. (Contains 3 notes.)
