We invite you to join us for the Moodle Academy free webinar “Could Moodle reduce gender inequities?” on Wednesday 15 March, 9:00-10:00 UTC.
Recent research on gender minorities showed that more males than females dropped out during their first year of studying Engineering. One possible reason could be the difference in their use or take-up of Moodle.
It is well known that day to day studying is more difficult for minorities. If the face to face element is tougher, might the remote element help females to stay engaged with the curriculum? In order to answer this question, the use rate of Moodle by male and female Engineering students at various levels was observed before and during exam periods.
In this session, which is free to attend, Agnès Peeters from Haute École Bruxelles-Brabant (HE2B) in Belgium will present the statistical results and suggest some ways Moodle could help (gender) minorities at university level.
Note: this webinar is part of the free course ‘Moodle Academy webinars‘. You have to be enrolled in the course to join the webinar.
