This paper presents an ongoing Multimedia in Education PhD research (2011-2014) focused on the relevance of students’ questioning habits in the teaching, learning and assessment processes.

Focusing on undergraduate Chemistry students, in particular the first year students, at the University of Aveiro, in Portugal, it is our intention to investigate and characterize feminine and masculine students’ questioning profiles, in different situations, such as traditional classes and online interactions.

Throughout this project a set of teaching, learning and assessment strategies will be conceived and implemented, in order to foster students questioning and to create a welcoming setting for the raise of questions by students of both genders. It is, thus, our intention to contribute to greater gender equity in the learning, teaching and assessment processes.
