Research paper published that explores gender bias in higher education based on student evaluations

Our research paper titled, “Evaluating student evaluations: evidence of gender bias against women in higher education based on perceived learning and instructor personality” was recently published in Frontiers in Education, under the research topic “Women’s Experience and Gender Bias in Higher Education”.

In this study, we examined whether perception of male and female instructors differed in terms of how they facilitate learning and level of engagement, using an experimental design and online avatars. Six hundred and seventy-one university students were asked to watch a video of an online lecture on psychology, delivered by either a male or female lecturer, after which they were asked to evaluate their experience and instructor personality characteristics.
