Nov 25 – TRIUMF Colloquium – Identity, Gender and Persistence in Science

“This presentation will examine identity as a way of understanding gender patterns in participation and persistence in science, physics in particular. Considering these issues from the perspective of identity brings together findings related to interest, motivation, confidence, achievement, stereotypes and recognition and provides a focus for engaging in activities to encourage and support students at all levels. Results from two large studies, one of high school students and another of first year university students, will be reviewed to understand the factors that influence student identification and the outcomes (such as career and degree choice) that result.”
