The European Association for Adult Education (EAEA) has published a background paper that addresses the role of gender in adult education and learning (ALE) and promotes gender-sensitive approaches towards learning.
EAEA: “Gender sensitivity in ALE is about more than trying to improve targeted outreach programmes for men and women who seem to be slipping through the gaps. Providing gender-sensitive educational opportunities makes people not only more likely to engage, but also more likely to get the most out of their experiences.”
DVV International is a member organisation of the EAEA. The Association’s President is currently DVV International’s Deputy Director Uwe Gartenschlaeger.
