Women in Science – Emerging Technologies in an ELearning Environment

On 11 February 2021 at 4:00 pm CET, DEL4ALL is organising a World Café Webinar entitled “Women in Science – Emerging Technologies in an ELearning Environment” as part of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. At present, less than 30 percent of researchers worldwide are women, and according to UNESCO data (2014 – 2016), only around 30 percent of all female students select STEM-related fields in higher education. Science and gender equality are both vital for technology development. Therefore, our World Café brings together several female experts working in the field of technology to share their achievements and expertise and to discuss the value of emerging technologies for the e-learning environment. As part of the event, DEL4ALL will also introduce its latest project findings captured in the first version of the DEL Research Agenda.
