Event description

Description

Indigenous academics play a critical role in embedding Indigenous perspectives and knowledges within the curriculum, however the task of teaching can be a source of stress, particularly in encountering hostile and resistant students. While these challenges are increasingly recognized, there has been a limited response from a teaching and learning perspective about how to navigate race and racism within the classroom. The purpose of this Symposium is to identify culturally safe pedagogies for Indigenous educators tasked with teaching Indigenous knowledges and perspectives within Australian Universities.

Guest Panellists include:

Professor Bronwyn Fredericks (Pro Vice-Chancellor of Indigenous Engagement, Central Queensland University)

Professor Dennis McDermott (Poche Chair in Indigenous Health and Wellbeing, Flinders University)

Dr Chelsea Bond (Senior Research Fellow, Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, The University of Queensland)

Dr Bryan Mukandi (Lecturer, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Queensland)

Mr David Sjoberg (Associate Lecturer in Indigenous Health, Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and Wellbeing, Flinders University)

Ms Debbie Bargallie (PhD Candidate, Queensland University of Technology)

While the focus of this Symposium is on the experiences and practices of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander educators involved in teaching Indigenous knowledges within an Australian University, it is also open to non-Indigenous educators.

Lunch will be provided and spaces are limited so please secure your ticket as soon as possible.

Support for this Fellowship has been provided by the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching. The views in this Fellowship do not necessarily reflect the views of the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching.
