GENDER T.I.D.E.- Gendering Training for Information and Documentation Experts

General aim of this project is to assess new training methodologies for information and documentation specialists working in women’s centres (adult education training institutions, women’s documentation centres, libraries, civil associations, national and international NGO’s, etc.).

We believe that a wide gender perspective is more and more needed in the training field as a whole.
The “women perspective”, in fact, reflects the importance of the value of all differences among people- i.e. race, disability, age, sexual orientation, etc.- and thus should be used as a theoretical tool accounting for innovative methodology.

The Gender TIDE partnership aims at creating a European forum of exchange of experiences and good practices and producing a Good Practice Guide, which should be a compendium of already existing and new possible training methods, reflecting the direct experiences and different skills of the partners involved.

We want to create a new curriculum able to train information experts having transversal and adequate skills such as: the ability of working to ensure the respect for diversity; the capability of interacting, net-working and exchanging with different realities (European and international networks, universities, research centres, political organizations and the corporate world); the capability of using the ICTs in a non- neutral way and thus offering free access to information services to all.
