Current best practices for encouraging more female students to pursue degrees in economics may actually have the opposite effect and worsen gender disparities in the field, a recent study from Oregon State University found.
Despite concerns that remote learning would drive at-risk college students away, some students' motivation and interest in their studies increased during the pandemic, according to a study of underrepresented students in a biology course by researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
