GaiT - the Gender and Information Technology Project
ANSN joined with GaIT, as an Industry Partner. This project involved researchers from three universities, who investigated why girls continued to be under-represented in university IT courses. Key research questions have included:
- What are girls and boys beliefs about IT courses, and what are the sources of these beliefs?
- How do girls and boys choose or reject IT career related courses at the post-secondary level?
- How do high school curriculum structures, school contexts and teaching practices affect boys and girls interests in pursuing studies in IT-related areas?
