Connections to R325/Kimmel
  • Interplanetary Theory of Gender Difference
    • Survey results show we’re more alike than different
  • Hidden Curriculum
    • Informal interactions with professors and students
    • Based on my survey, this could extend to the way we perceive and interact with our learning environments
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Our university’s learning environments are mostly neutral (half of responses and over half of classrooms were neutral).
  • Men and women seemed to define gendered learning environments in the same way.
  • Newer spaces should consider gendered visual appearance.
