Equity and Culture & Social Justice in Education
This paper provides an overview of the design and implementation of an educational tool, Tandem, designed to support student teams. As attendees will know, teamwork pedagogy has the potential to be incredibly powerful, increasing student motivation and providing a more authentic context for the learning of core professional skills associated with engineering, such as communication and teamwork. However, attendees will also be familiar with research findings of both explicit sexism and racism as well as more systemic patterns in how identity shapes experiences in engineering, perhaps especially in teamwork. This paper discusses the tool itself, our goals for its further development, and ethical questions we have encountered while working to help design this teamwork support tool to detect and push back against systemic inequities in teamwork experiences.
