Empowering women: what is the role for pedagogy?

This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to exchange and share experiences and stories of teaching practices in order to integrate gender-responsive pedagogy in vocational and technical training and in the implementation of international projects. Panelists will be invited to guide the discussions by presenting the foundations of this approach. Testimonials from teachers and students from a variety of contexts will also be presented to fuel the exchanges. Members of the CICan Gender Community of Practice will be present to accompany this discussion.

‘’Gender equality unleashes the full power of education to tackle the problem of imbalanced power relations, social norms, discriminatory practices and belief systems underpinning gender-based disparities and contributing to societal exclusion. This includes the essential first step of ensuring gender parity – equal numbers and proportions of girls and boys enrolled in and completing different levels of education. Gender equality is, however, much more than that; it speaks to the birth of a new era of education that considers the needs, interests and lived experiences of all learners, and which tackles the intersecting and simultaneous disadvantages that may inhibit a child, youth or adult from fully exercising their right to participate in, complete and benefit from education.’’
