Breaking Through: Engendering Monitoring and Evaluation in Adult Education

  • June 1999

Adult education, gender and monitoring and the evaluation are three separate areas that have undergone redefinition and reconceptualization in the last ten years. Adult education, which is commonly associated with literacy, basic education, and vocational and technical education, no encompasses, among other things, health education, leadership training, and conflict resolution seminars offered by diverse providers, from the state, the corporate world, academe, and NGOs to people’s organisations. Gender, a seemingly neutral concept, which refers to the social construction of the sexes, is now a critical topic in development discourses where gender analyses, gender trainings, and gender mainstreaming are considered necessary inputs processes and outputs for societal transformation.  Meanwhile the gurus of quantitative monitoring and evaluation are witnessing a decline in their popularity, as organisations and individuals acknowledge that using both quantitative and qualitative methods render a more nuanced picture of reality. One of the consequences of these changes is the rapid growth and innovation in these different areas.
