University of Technology Sydney ( Australia) Indigenous Higher Education Curriculum Conference
The Indigenous Higher Education Curriculum Conference will be a two-day conference held at UTS on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 November 2022.
The purpose of the conference is to highlight that Australian universities are progressively embedding Indigenous perspectives into higher education curriculum to provide students with Indigenous graduate attributes to work with and for Indigenous Australians across their chosen professions.
Australia’s universities have a responsibility to be the beacons of light in delivering social justice agendas across its many curriculums and courses.
– Professor Juanita Sherwood, Universities Australia, Indigenous Strategy 2022-2027, p.48
The Indigenous Higher Education Curriculum Conference will create a national community of practice forum to promote the ethical embedding of Indigenous perspectives across higher education curriculum and provide a setting for university academics to share their examples of design, development and delivery of Indigenous curriculum.
