  • An introduction to foundational-level concepts around gender and sexuality
  • For anyone who is passionate to learn more about gender and sexuality
  • Offered in moderated, self-paced and blended modes (more details below)

After a successful run for five years, TARSHI’s ‘Basics and Beyond: Online Course on Sexuality and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights’, adapted from TARSHI’s Basics and Beyond Training Manual, is back in a new format. The original 50-hour course has been updated and streamlined, and is now being offered as two separate short courses:

  • Part 1: Basics and Beyond Online Course on Sexuality and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
  • Part 2: Beyond Basics Online Course on Sexuality and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

The Basics and Beyond Online Course (Part 1) addresses foundational-level concepts around sexuality, gender and sexual and reproductive health (SRHR). It is a pre-requisite for Part 2 of the course, i.e. Beyond Basics Online Course.

The course is for individuals or organisations working on sexuality and sexual and reproductive health and rights, students of social work, the social sciences, counselling, teaching, nursing and medicine who can use our eLearning course to supplement their academic knowledge. In fact, it is for just about anyone who is passionate to learn more about gender and sexuality.

This course is in English and comprises three modules, which introduce the learner to the fundamentals of gender, and sexuality related topics. It weaves in interactive and multimedia modes of engaging with the core content, using exercises, YouTube videos, journal articles and a closed Facebook group to address sensitive and challenging issues in inventive and personalised ways. It also includes a module with tools and tips for trainers with ideas and exercises on how to lead an effective workshop or training programme on the topics discussed through the course.
