The Council of Europe organized the launching webinar of the Checklist on Gender Mainstreaming Law Schools’ Curricula and its interactive online tool.

 

I was asked to design and develop the interactive online tool of the webinar. The purpose of this checklist was to allow key staff in law schools (e.g. university management, deans, professors, etc) to reflect upon and assess the extent to which gender is mainstreamed in law curricula, and to guide them where further actions are needed.

 

How can gender mainstreaming strengthen women’s access to justice? What are the promising practices in Europe on ensuring gender equality in academia and research? How gender mainstreaming law schools contributes to addressing gender bias among legal professionals? These were the questions answered in a webinar on 7 December 2020.

 

More than 50 university staff, senior management and researchers from higher education institutions in Council of Europe member States participated to the launching webinar of the Checklist for Gender Mainstreaming Law Schools’ Curricula and its interactive tool.

How it works

 

During the course, the user can see some questions related to gender mainstreaming in higher education. The questions are organized according to the main four categories: “What?”, “How?”, “Who” and “In what context?”.

 

Before answering each question, the user should read the additional content, that will help him make their choices.

 

While browsing, the user should click on the different icons and find out what’s hidden.

 

At the end of the course, the final score is shown.

 

You can check the interactive online tool clicking on this link.

How I did all this stuff

 

My goal was to develop an interactive tool that would allow the user to navigate in an easy and fun way. The design would have to make the content appealing and not too heavy for the user.

 

Each category is associated with a color.“What?” is purple, “How?” is orange, “Who” is blue, and “In what context?” is green. That way the content is totally organized and the user can recognize easily each of them. The four colors rotate around the screen during the course, all being present continuously. However, there is one that stands out in each category.

 

I created a set of representative illustrations for each category. I tried to make the characters inclusive, whether men, women, or nationalities. Its design also sought a fun and relaxed style.

During the course, the user has a set of content to explore. The content is shown to the user in different ways and so it is always a surprise. As it is interactive, the user must click on the different buttons that appear to access more information. This way the user feels motivated to see what will happen next.

 

The course is complemented both with beautiful illustrations, photographs, and icons.

When the user finishes all the questions, it’s time to reveal the final scores. It is calculated a score for each category between 0% and 100%. This way the user can identify what could be better. It is recommended additional content based on his score.

 

I added a possibility to print the Score page as a bonus feature.
