要約

Many female professors struggle with negative teaching experiences and evaluations. This statement is particularly relevant to female engineering professors, who today are often young, untenured, and teaching male-dominated classes. The Gender and Diversity Committee in Engineering at the University of Calgary created a series of discussion sessions for female faculty members titled "Success in the Classroom". The objectives of the sessions were to provide mentoring, support, and encouragement for female faculty through the sharing of ideas, anecdotes, and success strategies regarding undergraduate teaching. This paper describes the situation for female engineering faculty at the University of Calgary and the objectives, structure, and outcomes of the sessions as well as highlights some of the "secrets" for success in the classroom.
