Introduction
Elisabeth's current research addresses gendered and intersectional dynamics in a digitalised world. She examines aspects of education, learning and knowledge creation in a digitalised world. She builds on her expertise in praxeological epistemology and utilises quantitative and qualitative methods.

Article
Full-text available
This article proposes a new composite measure of gender diversity for research teams that goes beyond simply ‘counting heads’. This measure adopts a more elaborated understanding of gender diversity than merely relying on the proportion of women and men, by taking into account the outcomes of gendered processes along seven grounds of diversity (age...
Chapter
Die österreichischen Universitäten sind vergeschlechtlichte, soziale Räume, in welchen Status, Macht und Einfluss ungleich auf die Geschlechter verteilt und vorwiegend in Händen von (weißen) Männern sind. Um dem entgegenzuwirken, wurde im Jahr 2009 eine Quotenregelung für universitäre Gremien eingeführt. Dieser Beitrag untersucht, inwiefern diese F...
Article
Full-text available
Wearable sensors are becoming increasingly popular in organizational research. Although validation studies that examine sensor data in conjunction with established social and psychological constructs are becoming more frequent, they are usually limited for two reasons: first, most validation studies are carried out under laboratory settings. Only a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Wearable sensors are providing exciting new research opportunities for social scientists. The scholarly community has invested considerable effort to assess the validity and reliability of gathered data over the recent years (Kayhan et al., 2018; Parker et al., 2018). The grand majority of these initial studies has relied on laboratory experiments...
Article
Full-text available
Sensor-based data are becoming increasingly widespread in social, behavioral and organizational sciences. Far from providing a neutral window on 'reality', sensor-based big-data are highly complex, constructed data sources. Nevertheless, a more systematic approach to the validation of sensors as a method of data collection is lacking, as their use...
Technical Report
In this report, a large part of the results of the GEDII project are combined. As such it is the outcome of a collective, prolonged effort that merges diverse scientific expertise and skills. The present report contains the findings of the cross-country survey regarding gender diversity in R&D teams across Europe and its link to performance indicat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During the first year of computer science studies, students frequently experience difficulties, which can have multiple reasons. We have observed a tendency that students with computer science education at high-school seemed to be more confident and successful in their studies than students with a regular high-school education. As we experienced di...
Chapter
Gender research goes beyond adding sex as an independent, explanatory category. To conduct gender research in the field of business and management, therefore, it is important to apply a more sophisticated understanding of gender that resonates with contemporary gender theory. This entails taking the social construction of gender and its implication...
Technical Report
Full-text available
A core objective of the GEDII project is to provide empirical evidence on the potential link between gender diversity within teams and research performance/innovation. This report builds upon a previous report (Humbert and Guenther 2017), which provided preliminary considerations and results in efforts to build the Gender Diversity Index. The Gende...
Article
This paper explores the intersectional interference of gender and migration status on students’ persistence at an Austrian University of Technology. While controlling for the pre-university education and performance indicators, we estimate the odds for the persistence of male and female students, as well as of students with diverse migration status...
Chapter
Ob Finanz-, Pflege- oder Bildungskrise - aktuelle Krisen bergen das Potenzial, die Legitimität von Herrschaft zu verändern. Die Stabilität von Legitimationsmustern ist gesellschaftlich, politisch und wissenschaftlich umkämpft und historisch jeweils neu zu reflektieren: Werden Formen der Legitimation etwa von Demokratie, Leistung, sozialen Ungleichh...
Chapter
Das diesem Beitrag zugrunde liegende Verständnis von ungleichheitssensibler Lehre folgt dem pädagogischen Leitsatz, Studierende dort abzuholen, wo sie stehen. Vor allem in der Studieneingangsphase kann eine individuelle Förderung die Teilhabechancen von – aufgrund ihrer Herkunft und Vorbildung, demographischer Charakteristika oder anderer biographi...
Chapter
Vienna University of Technology (VUT) has an extremely high student dropout rate of more than 50 percent in its curricula. This study analyses whether and to what extent socio-demographic factors increase the dropout risk at VUT. In particular, the study analyses whether academic integration, measured by several performance indicators, decreases dr...

GEDII (https://www.gedii.eu/) aims for nothing less than a fundamental re-configuration of research performance assessment. The first challenge lies in upgrading the lens through which gender dynamics influence teams and organizations’ research outputs, which at present is largely seen through “soft science” investigations. GEDII proposes examining new types of quantifiable evidence, new units of analysis, and new “perspectives” for investigating gendered group dynamics. Secondly with this approach for using new evidence and units of analysis, the next challenge lies in discovering how to compare findings about these units across different private and public sectors and countries. Here, GEDII’s substantial contribution for conceiving and evaluating gender on the team level will stand out in its usefulness. Given new understandings and available comparative data, next is the challenge of how to begin to measure the social value and opportunity costs involved in current science policies and assessment practices. GEDII’s ambition is to contribute to a more inclusive understanding of evaluation and science assessment while contributing to the dialogues for unblocking political and institutional reticence to change. Fourthly, through the combination of the GEDII survey with datamining performance indicators, GEDII will go beyond existing bibliometric studies and performance surveys alike. The innovative approach allows us to explore correlations between detailed performance measures (bibliometrics) and the survey level data regarding the dimensions aggregated in the Gender-Diversity-Index GDI. GEDII will: develop concepts and tools for assessing the antecedents, processes and outcomes of gender diversity on research performance in teams and organizations develop through four case studies a method for detecting and measuring how gendered role expectations and behaviors shape team communication and information sharing develop and test a scalable, reliable statistical measure of gender diversity that is aware and sensitive to the gendered structures of team work target the team and organizational level, assess the benefits of gender diversity for science and society develop and test a flexible assessment framework that links our gender-diversity measure to a combination of traditional (patents & publications) and new emerging performance indicators generate empirical evidence through a five country / two sector survey on the multiple effects of gender diversity on research performance and its moderating variables stimulate public awareness and support change-enabling engagement in science, industry, policy and civil society through innovative societal dialogues about the evidence-based, comparable benefits of gender-diversity.
