Description

Has the lack of civics education in schools led to a lack of civility in Universities?: Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationship impediments

Professor Mark McMillan

Pedagogy in the Pub is a series of monthly discussions, facilitated by some of the keenest educational thinkers from Australia and abroad. Each month, we will respond to a provocation from our speakers to explore ways that can reimagine the ‘promise of education’ in a ‘post-truth’ world.

In October, the discussion shift to The Last Jar Dining Room, where it will be led by Professor Mark McMillan who will discuss the promise of civics education for addressing the ongoing effects of white settlement on Indigenous Australians.

Professor Mark McMillan is a Wiradjuri man and the inaugural Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Education and Engagement at RMIT. He was named National NAIDOC Scholar of the year for 2013.

His research interests are in the area of human rights and, in particular, the expression and fulfillment of those rights for Indigenous Australians.
