The Flinders University Reconciliation Action Plan calls for continued and broadened inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural content in our courses of study. While there exist some resources and pockets of activity, the Learning and Teaching Academy is an ideal vehicle to drive institutional strategy around how we approach the inclusion of Indigenous Knowledges in our teaching.
This exciting event interweaves separate sessions across the week of 20 – 24 September, and includes important topics and showcases, with the centrepiece event being a Leadership Panel Discussion chaired by Professor Simone Tur, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous).
