Gender and Computing: An Interactive Exploration of Student Experience

Date & Time: 20 Jan, 1.30pm – 5:00pm
Location: Room WG608
Open to all delegates to pre-register
Contact: Lynn Andrea Stein, Olin College of Engineering.

The experience of being – or preparing to become – a computing professional can be very different for male vs. female individuals. In this interactive special session, we lead participants through a facilitated conversation and exploration of some of the factors accounting for these differences. Using a framework drawn from the theory of gender schemas, implicit association, micro-messaging, privilege, and self-efficacy, we both describe and demonstrate ways in which environment can shape experience. Participants will leave equipped with a set of tools and materials intended to facilitate further conversation at their home institutions.

Tour of Computer History Displays at The University of Auckland

Over the years the Department of Computer Science has built up a series of displays on the History of Computing that are installed in the lobbies of the “computing building.” The displays include a timeline that has recently been redesigned and reinstalled in the new Science Plaza.

Please let the guide know if you are interested in taking the tour so we will know if additional guides are required.
