The annual Dar es Salaam University College of Education Research and Innovation week took place this year between 20 – 22 April. The Research and Innovation week always brings together diverse groups of researchers to share and further scholarly and creative research work and highlight some of their best research outputs and innovations. During this event, the University community recognises students, faculty, departments, schools, colleges and institutes for their cutting edge scholarly and creative research activities through a series of discussions, forums, dialogues, symposia, exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and award ceremonies.
As always, the Research and Innovation week has provided a platform for the GATE project to present some of the evidence-based work. Members were able to present the Institutional Gender Assessment, the Gender Module work in progress, and the published work regarding “Exploring the Gendered Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Academic Staff in Tanzania”. The week also presented an opportunity for students to present their work on the Gender-Based Pedagogy training that was implemented by GATE.
