Aboriginal Education K-12 Conference

Overview

The Aboriginal Education K-12 Conference is designed to support the implementation of Aboriginal Education in public schools. Participants will engage with research, DoE and NSWTF policies to underpin and embed practices in the classroom.

There will be a primary and secondary workshop where educational leaders and experienced teachers will explore practical examples of ways to improve outcomes for Aboriginal students, develop knowledge and understandings of Aboriginal Australia for all students and build relationships and partnerships with Aboriginal communities. The presenters will be referring to the DoE Aboriginal Education Policy, NSWTF 25 Year Approach: The Way Forward and the NESA Standards.

Participants will be equipped to make practical and manageable changes in their classrooms, inspire colleagues and further develop Aboriginal Education for all.

Evaluation Comments:

  • (Useful) ideas for implementation of Aboriginal Education not only in my classroom but across my school.
  • I found the conference very useful in giving framework – both practically and philosophically. The resources were great and the presenters gave impetus and momentum to the task.
  • I loved hearing what others are doing – PLP’s explained and ideas for in class lessons. Loved the video on Acknowledgement to Country…So vital to our future education of Aboriginal culture/history/perspectives for ALL students.
