EFOP 2359 - GENDER, EDUCATION, & INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Credits: 3.0

In this course, we look at gendered dimensions of education and development in international contexts. We look cross-culturally, across space, and across "development" continua and paradigms. We examine gendered issues through three modules that represent diverse levels of educational practice - basic education, higher education, and non-formal and informal education. In order to provide focus in this rich and complex field, we hone in on key policy orientations that build sequentially, starting with the most fundamental issues of access and equity, continuing with capacity building, and extending to sustainability and creating social change. Since this class is feminist by design, we explicitly link policy with agency, theory with advocacy, and reflection with action. Each course section also contains a strand on advocacy and action, through which students are able to create a synthesis of module lessons through a personal, analytical standpoint piece.
