INCORPORATING A GENDER PERSPECTIVE IN THE TEACHING OF COMMUNICATION & JOURNALISM IN THE EURO-MEDITERRANEAN REGION

for people teaching in higher education including PhD students February – March 2021
The objective of the workshop is to provide university teachers and PhD students in media, journalism and communication with the tools to enable them to incorporate a gender-sensitive perspective in their teaching and learning.

Participants must engage in the whole training process.

Prof Brenda Murphy (SWB) and Louiselle Vassallo (MaKs) and #MediatingWomen are involved in the UNESCO/UniTWIN Network on Gender, Media and ICTs and this training workshop series.

This workshop responds to the need identified by UNESCO, as well as the universities that make up the UniTWIN Network of Universities in Gender, Media and ICTs, to encourage new generations of journalists and media professionals, including those working on digital platforms, to develop a gender-sensitive perspective so that they can incorporate this dimension in their professional work. This ambition aligns well with and supports UNESCO’s overall gender mainstreaming strategy.

The objective of the workshop is to provide university teachers and PhD students in media, journalism and communication with the tools to enable them to incorporate a gender-sensitive perspective in their teaching and learning. It also aims to provide educators from Europe and Africa with access to a number of online resources – in particular the UniTWIN Syllabi ‘Gender, Media and ICT. New approaches for research, education and training’ – and to share experiences and good practices, so as to foster educational partnership and promote gender equality in media and journalism education, bridging European and African academic communities.
