Design and Technology has long held a controversial place on the school curriculum, with some arguing that it shouldn’t be there at all. The (Continuing) Gender Debate presents and questions considered arguments and judgements, it encourages critical reflection and aims to stimulate both novice and experienced teachers to think more deeply about their practice, and link research and evidence to what they have observed in schools, and explores what the design and technology gender divide mean for schools and pupils.
