Reflect on your learning

An uneasy relationship exists between development and gender with ongoing major turning points. Watch Dr Maree Pardy summarise this course journey.

Reflecting on the problems of a single story has created a rich conversation.

In this course we’ve explored how the construction of a single story affects the way we think and act regarding either gender or development and in Gender and Development.

By now you should be able to critically analyse how gender and development are framed in contemporary society.

Articulating your thoughts, ideas and feelings is an important part of learning.

As a learning community, we’ve had the benefits of sharing many viewpoints. These kinds of rich conversations build critical thinking skills and an awareness of being a global citizen.

Your task

Watch the video to hear Maree summarise what we’ve learnt about the sometimes uneasy relationship that exists between development and gender in relation to major – and ongoing – turning points.

When you’re done, reflect on the materials you’ve covered and conversations we’ve had, and use the comments to summarise your own key takeaways and how your learning has affected your understanding of gender and development.
