D-STEM project is realized in the framework of the T.I.M.E. Association Call For Projects 2017-2018. The partnership is composed by METID – Politecnico di Milano (Coordinator), Technische Universität Berlin and Université Libre de Bruxelles.
The aim of the project is to support a raising awareness process to enhance diversity and inclusion in STEM academic context.
To reach this goal, D-STEM will start from the “Embracing Diversity” MOOC, delivered on POK (Polimi Open Knowledge) to enrich it with new contents and activities focused on gender enhancement in STEM area, proposing a reflection on the widespread stereotype according to which STEM studies and carriers are a prerogative of men. This enriched version of the MOOC will be offered simultaneously in the partners Institutions through three dedicated pilot experiences, that will increase the impact of the raising awareness process thanks to the online international exchange dimension among students.
