Half day Indigenous language and culture professional learning
Together with Adelaide Festival Centre’s centrED, we are offering a professional learning package for teachers.
Teachers will attend the panel: Indigenous Arts, Language and Entrepreneurship in the Asia-Pacific Region moderated by John Carty, Head of Humanities at the South Australian Museum, and Professor of Anthropology at the University of Adelaide, followed by a professional learning session focussing on the cross-curriculum priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.
Following the panel, teachers will join the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Creative Cities Conference delegates for a provided lunch before an afternoon, teacher exclusive workshop Incorporating Aboriginal Cultures into the Classroom.
This session will be hosted by Steel/Ryan Fellow, artist and illustrator, Celia Colin. Celia’s session will focus on utilising Adnyamathanha Muda Collection in the classroom. Adnyamathanha Muda Collection is a book series, illustrated by Celia, featuring cultural stories from the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Ranges. The workshop will enable teachers to make cross-curriculum connections and incorporate Aboriginal Histories and Cultures in the classroom with confidence.
Tickets are $30, and all attendees will receive a certificate of professional learning.
