Course overview and purpose:
Gender and intersectional discriminations issues are more and more discussed in the public debate and in educational contexts. International, European and national frames – policies and guidelines -on educational activities prioritise the need to face discriminations and inequality that characterise our societies and to identify strategies in order not to reproduce it – in general in the society, and above all in educational contexts. In this perspective, tackling these issues means planning and carrying out inclusive and awareness educational activities focusing on the intersection of: “how” we implement our role and activities – methods – and “what” we decide to deal with – (controversial) issues. With this course the participants will reflect on how it is possible to foresee educational activities taking in account this double focus.
The learning objectives are:
-To learn the basic terminology for activities on gender inclusion and equity
-To develop training experience for carrying out active and participatory activities
-To experiment active and participatory methodologies on issues oriented to work on gender inclusion and equity
-To develop awareness on the root causes of gender inequality and adopt global education in teaching and learning process
-To develop critical thinking skills in order to question the “gender paradigm”.
