Technology is not neutral and objective. Technology development and use occurs in gendered, racialized, and classed spaces. In this interactive feminist technology workshop, we will examine how computer systems repeatedly and systematically create unfair outcomes for users such as privileging one group of users over another. We will specifically consider the ways this impacts learning technologies.
Please note: For this workshop we will expect participants to engage with provided content prior to the workshop (expected to take less than 30 minutes).
