GenderMag Online Training (New BETA)

Design inclusive tech. Foster inclusive engineers. Join the movement.

The online training covers how to do and teach GenderMag.

Why learn to do GenderMag? So you can...

  • Design technology to support gender-based cognitive differences
  • Show that you value diversity and inclusion
  • Learn about your own cognition

Why teach GenderMag? So you can...

  • Teach students an ethical/responsible engineering practice
  • Help students feel more included/inclusive
  • Help students learn about their own ways of problem-solving

The training begins with this welcome video
 

What's the training like?

  • BETA version (not perfect yet!)
  • Self-paced and self-directed (go at your own speed, choose what you want to work on)
  • Ungraded and unsupervised (but we might review your responses to see if the training is effective)
  • Videos, readings, and activities throughout

How long does it take?

About 3 to 4 hours if you complete the entire training.
