Encouraging Female Participation in Computer Science

Professor Susan Davidson, Computer and Information Science

Thursday, January 24 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Peter-Michael Osera, CTL Graduate Fellow, Computer and Information Science

Location: Levine 307

Summary: Historically, women have been greatly underrepresented in Computer Science and other STEM disciplines. Why is it important that we work towards changing this statistic, and how we can do so in the classroom? Professor Susan Davidson, CIS department chair, shares her thoughts on how to encourage female participation in the Computer Science classroom.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Computer and Information Science department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
