Project: Recognizing and Questioning Gender Stereotypes in Daily Teaching

The goals of the project "Recognizing and Questioning Gender Stereotypes in Daily Teaching" are to record and educate about gender-stereotypical thinking and acting in the STEM subjects within the framework of teacher training. To this end, the project will first develop measuring instruments to identify and record potentially existing (gender) stereotypes among prospective teachers in as comprehensive and differentiated a manner as possible. In a next step, measures will be developed and tested that specifically address the issue of (gender) stereotyping and effectively promote the serious questioning of myths about innate differences in aptitude in STEM subjects. In addition, it will be investigated whether the developed measures contribute in the long term to promoting gender-sensitive teaching practices in order to strengthen the interest as well as the self-concept of girls for the STEM subjects.
