Rollins, Al; And Others
This manual is a guide to the design and implementation of workshops on inclusion of gender issues in U.S. Agency for International Development (AID) projects and programs. It describes a workshop to increase awareness of, information about, and skills for addressing gender issues in development programming. Its target audience is training specialists working within or for AID who need additional knowledge and/or frameworks to assist AID personnel in integrating gender considerations in development activities. An introduction provides an outline format for individual session descriptions, the workshop goal, a summary schedule, and detailed timing for a 3-day workshop. Part 2 contains the designs for the 10 workshop sessions. The format for each session is as follows: title; time; objective; rationale; activity (step-by-step description of the content and process, with suggested times and specific instructions for presentation, exercises, visual aids, and handouts); comments (experience-based anecdotes reflecting factors that affected the success of the session); variation; and materials (listing of prepared newsprint, handouts, equipment, and supplies necessary). Part 3 provides information on training organization, including a task list for planning training workshops; sample pre-workshop package (information and brief questionnaire mailed to participants); sample workshop evaluation forms; and list of 61 resources.
