Hidden gender inequities in undergraduate science courses - from exams to instructor humor

, 720

Sheridan Center for Teaching & Learning, SciLi 720 
In this talk, Dr. Brownell will present research on the experiences of women in undergraduate science courses. Dr. Brownell’s research shows gender gaps in exam performance, participation in class discussions, students’ confidence in their perception of their own intelligence, students’ perception of other students’ intelligence, and student perception of instructor humor in the classroom. Collectively, this work highlights that there are gender inequities present in college science classrooms that may not be apparent to instructors and that instructors may need to reconsider structuring undergraduate courses to mitigate these gender gaps.
