Gender Course

Society Without Violence NGO created a comprehensive academic offline course pertaining to gender for teachers/educators, and adults in continuing education.

The long-term experience of SWV in the field revealed the lack of in-depth gender studies course in the Armenian language developed for beginner and intermediate levels. The designed course specifically targets teachers and educators of the secondary schools aiming to decrease gender-based stereotypes and discrimination in educational institutions through educating the staff on gender matters.    

The course is designed by six local and international feminist academic scholars. It consists of six modules covering the definitions and concepts in gender studies including gender, sex, gender roles, gender stereotypes, gender – based violence, media and gender constructions, structural violence, continuum of violence, militarization, etc. For the detailed study of gender matters the social context and the role of the institutions are examined parallelly.

The syllabus was developed in a form of separate guidebook providing thorough understanding of objectives and outcomes of each module of the course (the syllabus is available in Armenian).

The course was developed in the scope of Enabling Accessible and Sustained Gender Education project.
