2010 FIE Special Session: What should a course reader on gender and engineering include? An unconference discussion

Published on

Abstract – To build upon the community that has formed at FIE interested in discussing feminist approaches to engineering education, we will hold a special session dis- cussion oriented around proposing a textbook that com- prehensively explores the topic of gender and engineer- ing. Through the organization of an “unconference” session discussion will include opportunity to discuss the audience and scope of such a proposed book, as well as explore the advantages and challenges of some of the existing texts on the market. The authors of this special session commit to turning the results of this discussion into a book prospectus to be distributed to appropriate publishers who might be interested in supporting such a book.

  • Welcome! Thanks for spending your time with us – hope to have some stimulating conversation in next 90 minutes. I’m Alice Pawley, asst prof of Engr Ed and affiliate with women’s studies at Purdue – Research in Feminist Engineering Group Start with introducing yourselves at your tables – we won’t have big report out so you can focus on your local convos – 5 min Building on a good tradition of special sessions, we’ve helped organize a few special sessions over the last few years focusing on thinking about feminist approaches to engineering. Today – want to discuss with you the prospect of creating a course reader on the topic of gender and engineering.
  • Admit the irony that this is a beginning plan where an unconference begins with no plan But to help us make use of our limited plan we offer this as some loose structure
  • Keep track of where we are in our plan with the circles

  • Alice: Mashup between open space technology and unconference ideals – the best part of the conference is the conversations in hallways and over dinner – so this helps bring that structure into the formal program. Some basic tenets – not sage on stage, barely guide on side.
  • Expertise in room is larger than in the person at the front – so how do we construct our conceptual and actual space and time together to access that expertise
  • Some things to take on faith – no shoulda woulda couldas,
  • Last – major rule to kee yourself and others accountable to – if you find yourself in a discussion where you are neither learning nor contributing, it is your responsibility to move to a different discussion. Or to start a new discussion,

  • We propose...
  • Now. Should your conversation be going FABULOUSLY and you want to stick with it – that’s you prerogative as in an unconference session. But you must be feeling that the conversation is worthwhile, and that you’re either contributing or learning. If you are not – leave it – visit another table, or change topics. Tools for doing this – post-it notes on tables –
  • Sticky notes ouone way of starting this org convo is for people to spend a min thinking on own about what they hope to learn – write on stickynote, then when you’re ready, start a collection of sticky notes on a table – looking for people also interested in talking about this Give it 10 minutes – we will call time. t to tables – what are your
