About the course
Each course provides five hours of NESA QTC Registered PD.
This professional development day for primary teachers explores practical ways to incorporate Indigenous perspectives in the classroom and provides participants with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and connection with the world’s oldest continuing living cultures.
Museum experts will demonstrate the value of oral histories and how these can be used to provide students with a more balanced and rich understanding of the history of Australia. Participants will gain firsthand experience examining historical perspectives from Aboriginal viewpoints and will undertake brainstorming sessions to enrich and adapt their existing History lessons in similar ways.
