Next May 20, will take place a roundtable on Education, Gender and ICTs. The roundtable will be chaired by Gill Kirkup
, senior professor of educational technology at the Institute of Educational Technology of the Open University (UK) and Head of Research, Data and Policy at the UK Resources Center for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
Juliet Webster, who opened the cycle of roundtables about Women and ICTs
last December, will be also giving us her point of view regarding this issue.
During the event, we will reflect about ICTs, education and women, starting from an initial question whether ICTs are a tool to help women to access education or if they have become a new barrier for them.
We will also focus on the situation in the developing countries, since education for women usually must respond to other kind of needs and we will reflect on the present role played by ICTs and try to figure out how can be their future role.
The event will be at the Jordi Pujol room from 10am to 12pm in Tibidabo (Avda. Tibidabo, 39-43) and among the attendants there will be members of the UOC Commission for Equality, researchers of the UOC Group of Research on Gender and ICTs and a representative of the Support Office for Equal Opportunities of the UPC.
