Description: This workshop moves through a series of participatory learning processes to explore gender norms, anchor understanding of HIV within sexual health, consider challenges of effective sexual health and prevention, and experience participatory learning strategies. It involves discussion of frameworks for grasping challenges and prevention dilemmas that HIV poses, as well as pedagogical 'training' and practice for gender-focused HIV education with interactive learning methods - useful for any angle of sexual health education. No prior work with HIV or gender is needed. Our gender approach will emphasize exploring mainstream frameworks that impose norms of masculinity, femininity and interrogate gender, agency and power. The instructor has worked with these methods in a wide range of international settings, and reference to working in different cultures will inform the class. Men students urged to join us - you are a necessary part of strategies and solutions.
