A Curriculum Design For A Course In Gender Issues In Development, Sheryl L. Kane Jan 1995

A Curriculum Design For A Course In Gender Issues In Development, Sheryl L. Kane

Master's Capstone Projects

What follows is an attempt to document the Gender Issues in Development course in an effort to give those who wish to teach it a base from which to draw upon. The teaching of the course is an organic process, in which the roots remain similar (using a feminist analysis to look at development and education, looking at the interplay between theory and practice, including traditionally marginalized voices and knowledges, and acknowledging the wealth of knowledges about the development process available from class participants) while the branches are dependent upon facilitators expertise and interests.

Having taken the course in 1991 ...

The Potential For Critical Social Inquiry Through Environmental Education In The Philippines, Ken Byrne

Master's Capstone Projects

The rate and extent of deforestation in the Philippines is phenomenal.

This figure had dropped to 10.5 million by 1969, and by 1993 it stood at 5.7 million. If one looks at old growth forests, where there is the greatest diversity of animal, plant, and insect life, then the figures are even more stark: In 1934, there were 11 million hectares of old growth forest; in 1969, 4.7 million; and by 1993 ...

Banfes Project Final Report, Linda A. Pursley Jan 1991

Banfes Project Final Report, Linda A. Pursley

Basic and NonFormal Education Systems (BANFES) Project

There are no outstanding evaluation recommendations at Component II (NTTC), so I have chosen to report my work by logframe outputs, using the question and answer format developed by the Project Evaluation Office for conducting interviews and collecting data on initiatives which were not otherwise evaluated. The second section relates my work to the relevant contractual obligations. Finally, I attempt to summarize what has been accomplished, and to reflect on the current situation and possible directions for the future.

My work with BANFES in Lesotho covers the period beginning in September 1985 and concluding in February 1991. Throughout this period ...
