ORDONEZ, Yesica P.; LUNA-CABRERA, Gloria C.; NARVAEZ-ROMO, Alejandra  and  TORRES-MARTINEZ, Francisco. Assessment of food security didactic material for rural women from the municipality of Pasto, Nariño (Colombia). Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.3, pp.103-112. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of this research was to evaluate didactic material for food security with the participation of rural women from three areas in the municipality of Pasto. Semi-structured surveys were applied to determine factors that influence learning during training workshops by using didactic material on food security. This was tested at four different times using a two-factor (didactic material and time) experimental design. The most influential factors observed in the learning process were sociological, psychological and emotional. In terms of time, learning about food security was significant in the long term. Participatory adjustments were made to the materials to strengthen food sovereignty issues important for the region. It was concluded that the didactic material had a positive influence on the training of rural women. The didactic material was considered innovative because it generated motivation for cultural respect principles and because it rescued local values and traditions.

Keywords : adult learning; didactic material; food security; food sovereignty.
