FREE HYBRID EVENT | We are proud to host the 8th annual Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Creating Futures Summit Series. We invite you to have conversations that matter to teaching and teacher education.
Transforming InDigenous Education in practice On, From, With and In Country, flowing with the TIDE
Tuesday 13 June, 8.15am to 3.00pm
Hilton Hotel, Brisbane
The 2023 summit conversation begins on Country, with the understanding that jagun (Country) holds its own narrative and is an active participant in our conversation.
If the work of educators and schooling are to further improve on our efforts to embed Indigenous knowledges and work with Indigenous communities, this will require exploring uncomfortable conversations and reflecting on unconscious biases, with a view to achieving Indigenous student success both now and future.
Our next step is action, garulbo (partner together) in: co-design, co-research, and co-community partnership; to encourage, embrace, respect, and give time to understand the hyperlocal complexity of knowledges; and learn from schools where educators and communities are demonstrating co-practice of Indigenous Education.
Consequently, and collectively, we will no longer fear the pan-Indigenising of curriculum content and the out of field teaching obligation, or unwittingly participate in the action of culturally taxing Indigenous co-workers with ‘doing’ the ‘work’ for us (knowledge and service). Rather, we will flow with the TIDE and participate in Jarara mobobo, a pedagogy of Country for today and tomorrow, to transform Indigenous education in practice.
