Increasing gender diversity among students in physics
Getting a good gender representation in physics courses, amongst both high school, university and pre-service teacher students, is a perennial problem. But does this apply to every country? Questions this panel will address are:
- Is obtaining a good gender representation more of a problem in developed countries?
- Which courses have the largest and smallest gender disparities?
- Are there examples of successful initiatives to improve the gender balance?
This panel will explore the country context of gender differences and brainstorm what we can learn from each other.
