The Janus Project: Promises and Prospects of Technology and Women's Learning

The Office of Learning Technologies of HRDC has approved funding for CCLOW to carry out a Project on new information technologies and women's learning. The project will take shape in two phases. First, research will be conducted to identify the practical and theoretical aspects of new information technologies as they relate to women's learning, and a discussion paper will be prepared. Second, a national workshop will bring together representatives from women's, literacy and adult education organizations, unions, industry and government to discuss the findings of the research, to share information and concerns, and to educate participants on gender issues as they relate to literacy, education and work.

The research is scheduled to begin this summer, with the national workshop to be held in the spring of 1997. A summary of the research paper will be published in a future issue of Women's Education des femmes, and copies of the workshop proceedings will be made available.
