In the project "Gendering MINT digital", the most recent approaches for gender-oriented R&D in science and technology are being developed and tested. In addition to a detailed documentation of the project, an extensive collection of Open Educational Resources (OER) is available in open access.
Thematically, the digital learning units address gender issues in consideration of the classical STEM subjects (i.e. biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer science). Two interdisciplinary learning units also deal with approaches in the field of gender equality in STEM and "technoscientific literacy". The modular structure allows for flexible use of teaching materials, and also includes digital learning units for private study.
By using Open Educational Resources (OER) in the STEM field, innovation-oriented companies can strengthen the gender competencies of their employees and trainees, especially with respect to technical and scientific R&D units. In this way, they promote entirely new thinking apart from the usual channels as a basis of innovation and contribute to the formation and maintenance of an inclusive innovation culture.
