Gender Analysis and Training Techniques Seminar Series


The seminar series has gotten off to a good start with very active and interesting sessions by both Susanna Smith and Sandra Russo. Attendance has been high, averaging 28 people a session. The majority of people attending the seminar are graduate students, however some faculty are taking advantage of the seminars.

As a reminder the schedule of seminars follows:


What is gender? Gender Analysis Conceptual Framework User Perspective Data Collection, Who Does What, When, Determining Access and Control Women in Development Training in International Agencies What is Training and How is it Different from Teaching? Specific Training Techniques for Gender Analysis


Using Case Studies for Training in Gender Analysis


S. Smith S. Russo P. Hildebrand M. Swisher A. Spring V. Crowder L. Staal B. Covington G. Greene E. Bolton


I contacted each of you earlier regarding plans for your sessions (LS memo December 11, 1991) and requested that you take some time to submit information in the form of a "lesson plan" for which I included an outline. The objective of this is to ensure that the proper equipment is available and to help us try to document the program and compile the beginnings of a training manual. Please let me know what you are thinking in regards to your session as soon as possible.

Karen Kainer, a graduate student in Forestry, is working with Susanna Smith this semester in an arranged independent program for credit. One of the things which Karen will be doing is documenting the seminar series. She will be writing up in a standard format the process of each session including objectives, methodologies, materials and evaluations used. She will be drawing from the information that you make available to her, so I would encourage you to provide as much information to her as you would like to be included. She will also be attending each of the sessions.

As this is the first training seminar series being sponsored by the WLAD program, it is important that we receive as much feedback as possible on the program. That will include information from the participants but also included the trainers. I am requesting that each of you participate in this feedback effort in the following ways:

1. Each session must have an evaluation form distributed at the beginning of
the session to be returned to either you or the International Training
Division, whichever you prefer. The feedback from the evaluations will be
a very useful planning tool for the VVIAD training program. You can
choose to submit a brief summary of the evaluation responses, or copies of
the completed evaluation forms within 2 weeks following your session.

My office will be happy to work with you on any aspect of planning your
session, compiling the evaluation forms and providing copies. If we are
compiling the evaluation form for your session you must get the
information to us a few days before your session. A sample of the
evaluation form used for Susanna Smith's session is attached for your
information.

2. Karen Kainer will be requesting documents from you for your session
which she will use to document the session. If there are comments on
what you would have done differently, you may want to let Karen know so
that she can include the recommendations for the future deliveries.

3. Following the completion of the training series, we will schedule a meeting
of all contributing trainers to discuss the process and recommendations
specifically about this series as well as other types of training that we may
want to undertake for the future.


Thanks again for participating in this effort. Let's think of future potentials. Let me know if you have any ideas.
