Show Notes

Laura was introduced to Dr. Kristina Mitchell’s (@KMWMitchell) research at the last National University Technology Network (NUTN) conference back in 2017. Kristina’s study offered findings around Gender Bias in Student Evaluations from university instruction and was co-authored with Jonathan Martin. We were thrilled to have Kristina on the #InVinoFab Podcast, Episode no. 18 to share about her passion for political science, gender equity, international relations, and action films.

The Chronicle article, No More Chili Pepper: RateMyProfessors Ditches ‘Hotness’ Ratings, Dr. Mitchell was quoted sharing part of her gender bias in teacher evaluations: 
“What we noticed was that students were much more likely to comment on my appearance and my personality, and to call me a ‘teacher.’ They were a lot more likely to mention his competence or refer to him as a ‘professor.” ~ Dr. Kristina Mitchell

Dr. Mitchell said the language used in the ratings indicated that “we were evaluated on two different sets of criteria.” Comments about her personality or image or her body were being sexually objectified. Kristina said, “Students were looking at me not as a source of expertise on a topic, but either as a barrier to them not getting the grade they wanted because I’m too mean, or as a potential sexual conquest.” This was not a surprise based on her study of research and examination into how learners evaluate women and men differently at the university-level.
