Technology-based models of teaching and learning are re-ceiving both social and political attention in the post-second-ary sector. However, instructional design practices have, up to now, been rooted in a domain constructed in, and reflect-ing, androcentric values. In this paper the traditional, rational framework and outcomes-driven design of most computer-based educational applications is contrasted with the rela-tional knowing supported by new technologies such as com-puter- mediated conferencing. A set of heuristics is proposed to guide feminine learning design relative to the social con-struct of gender and technology.
