Women’s participation in higher education is a major concern in many regions of the world. But while enrolment from women is steadily improving, it masks a significant problem: classroom spaces and campuses often don’t provide supportive environments for women and men to learn together.
This webinar (recorded on 21st April 2021) presents a new approach to developing sustainable gender responsive pedagogy within higher education institutions in low-resource or low-infrastructure environments.
Taking a gender responsive approach to the planning and facilitation of teaching and learning processes can help universities ensure that the talent of all students – men and women – can thrive.
In this webinar, presenters from institutions across the Transforming Employability for Social Change in East Africa (TESCEA) partnership, share learning from the co-development and pilot of a new gender responsive pedagogy framework across four East African Universities (Uganda Martyrs University and Gulu University in Uganda, and University of Dodoma and Mzumbe University in Tanzania).
