~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Eleventh International Literacy and Education Research Network Conference on Learning

Shaping New Practices

Julie Woodlock.

The “Shaping New Practices” workshop will stimulate discussion by presenting educational options for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that are inclusive of their community and that challenge Progressivist practices, which favour certain students and marginalise others. We will also present new teaching and learning practices in Vocational Education and Training (VET) where ATSI people will be able to express their own cultural domains whilst pursuing their educational pathways in VET. Notions of multigenerational knowledge, inclusion, distributed delivery, reciprocity, advocacy, community participation, project pedagogy, recognition of skills and knowledge, community advocacy and culture will be put forward for debate in this session.
