Gender Analysis of Open and Distance Learning in the Caribbean Region
Gender_ODL _Caribbean_2014.pdf (1.585Mb)
This report provides an overview and analysis of the existing literature on open and distance learning (ODL) in the Caribbean from a gender perspective. It covers a wide range of themes encompassing the socio-cultural and economic factors. For some there was no data or analysis available directly related to gender issues or the data available is over ten years old. In these instances, the report summarized key ODL issues in that area and assessed the relevant gender equality issues and questions influencing the related current practices and status. The gender analysis is based on an adaptation of two different frameworks: 1) the Empowerment Framework which examines gender from the perspectives of empowerment at the Welfare, Access, Participation and Ownership and Control levels; and 2) the World Bank Economic Systems Framework which looks at the interactions between informal institutions (such as gender values within the family) and formal institutions such as educational institutions.
