World Vision – Reconciliation Week LIVE

Just in case you missed the World Vision LIVE for Reconciliation Week 2020, here I am sharing from my experiences, how to embed First Nations cultures and histories within the curriculum and the importance of connecting with your local First Nations Communities.

Thank you to World Vision for the opportunity to share and inspire other non-Indigenous teachers. This was a part of the campaign for “In my blood it runs” and Reconciliation Week 2020.

LAUNCHING Webinar series

I am excited to be going online to support you all in these unprecedented times and ensure you continue to have access to quality Professional Learning that supports you to grow as an Educator.

This 4 part series is designed to engage Educators in any education setting, be that Childcare, the Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary, to grow their professional practices and standards and ensure culturally safe and supportive learning environments are created.

This series is will build a strong foundation for Educators to engage with First Nations peoples and ensure Educators act in culturally appropriate ways to build and strengthen these relationships.

This series does not teach First Nations Culture, nor is it designed to replace the relationships you need to support you in your local environment.

Join me as I share my personal stories of how I went from being a graduate teacher with no cultural capability in the mid-1990s to becoming an Educator of over 20 years’ experience of working with and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities all over Australia. I hope to inspire you to embed key pedagogies like Uncle Ernie’s Framework, 8 ways, Being a Significant Other as I guide you through the Building Cultural Capability Framework.
