Additional Information

Join in conversation with Dr. Stephanie Gilbert about the challenges facing educators and managers in Indigenous education, using The Wollotuka Institute, University of Newcastle as a model. How to support Indigenous students to enter, remain, and succeed at University whilst responding to the pressure to increase the recruitment of students will be a major focus of our discussion, as well as the particular challenge facing Indigenous Faculty and Professional staff to recruit at the same time as building a culturally safe educational environment. Supporting the ongoing development of Indigenous knowledge and the discipline of Indigenous studies lends an added complexity to the debate.

Dr. Gilbert will address the topic from an Indigenous Australian perspective, having now served in Aboriginal education for over 25 years.
