Practical Examples
The integration of a gender equality and diversity perspective into the design of the SATIN platform involved ensuring the design promotes self-efficacy, reflection and a number of other factors and strategies. The aim is to broaden the group of users able to develop apps without any prior knowledge of programming. Regular seminars and exchange of experience were organised in different work groups within the SATIN project. Lena Palmquist, a postgraduate student at Umeå University’s Department of Computing Science, held a seminar as part of this process.You can read her presentation here (PDF).
