Sharing place, learning together

This project addresses sociocultural barriers to equity of participation and outcomes in school and tertiary studies through sharing knowledge and documenting new insights into working with Indigenous communities and educators. Connecting with a remote Indigenous school, the project sought to draw out new insights into capacity building, and the role partnerships play in supporting Indigenous education, identifying mutual benefits and outcomes. The main aim of this project is to augment Indigenous perspectives and pedagogies within the Science, Medicine and Education Faculties.
