|Title:||Exploring Sense of Belonging in Computer Science Students||Authors:||Mooney, Catherine; Antoniadi, Anna Markella; Karvelas, Ioannis; Salmon, Lana; Becker, Brett A.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12185||Date:||19-Jun-2020||Online since:||2021-05-20T08:55:31Z||Abstract:||Student sense of belonging has been shown to be associated with many attributes such as motivation and persistence. However, sense of belonging can show variations according to factors such as race and gender. In this study, we examine the relationship between undergraduate Computer Science students' participation in networking, outreach, and mentoring activities and their sense of belonging. Results reveal lower levels of sense of belonging in women and self-identified minorities. However, we observed a higher sense of belonging in female students who participated in networking, outreach, and mentoring activities.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||ACM||Copyright (published version):||2020 the Authors||Keywords:||Sense of belonging; Gender equality; Inclusion; Diversity||DOI:||10.1145/3341525.3393974||Other versions:||https://iticse.acm.org/ITiCSE2020/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||ITiCSE '20: Proceedings of the 2020 ACM Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education||Conference Details:||The 25th Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE 2020), Virtual Conference, 15-19 June 2020||ISBN:||9781450368742||ISSN:||1942-647X||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
