Integrating research-based teaching practices into classrooms that are student-centered is becoming more common at the university level. Specifically, Project Based Learning (PBL) has been implemented in a variety of engineering courses to provide students with a more authentic experience. Previous research has looked at the impact of PBL on student outcomes, experiences, and learning; however, the vast majority of research on PBL ignores gender. This is a problem because other research examining women’s experiences in engineering has identified teamwork (which is a core component of PBL) as a problem. Furthermore, to date, no research has examined engineering professors’ knowledge and practices related to gender and PBL through interviews with professors themselves.
