- Gender sensitive education
We often hear that sex does not matter nowadays. If it is so, why one of the first questions that parents get in pregnancy is the one asking about sex of a baby? We ask because sex matters. We need to know sex in order to start communication with a child in the language that is adjusted to a grammatical gender. From an early age a child begins to create its gender identity and it is important for him/her to rank himself/herself as a boy/girl. Gender identity enables the child´s development but it can block it as well. Parents and other people participating in education do not develop a wide range of characteristics and competences only because they believe that it is not suitable for a boy/girl. In the course of the seminar we reflect on the ways how we can help children to a comprehensive development without restricting their world by impenetrable gender barriers.
- Mapping of competences and competence management
The term competence is used widely in the school education system, adult education or work life. How can we find out what competences we have? How can we build on them in our lives?
In the 1990s in Switzerland they looked into the ways of transferring big numbers of women from their households to the labour market and to qualified and managerial positions without an adequate formal education. In consequence, they invented the so-called CH-Q methodology – mapping of competences that is widely used in recognition of nonformal learning.
We acquaint you with the CH-Q methodology – mapping of competences. You will be able to test several activities yourself and take away material for further reflections on your own personal development.
