Australian Indigenous Studies Learning and Teaching Network
The Australian Indigenous Studies Learning and Teaching Network is a collaboration of Indigenous and non-Indigenous tertiary educators who are committed to improving their teaching and learning practices in Australian Indigenous studies.
Led by Professor Cindy Shannon, Dr Katelyn Barney and Professor Martin Nakata, the network seeks to engage scholarly understandings of historical and contemporary relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, and to progress curriculum forms that demand quality learning experiences for all tertiary students. Funding for beginning the network was provided by the Office of Learning and Teaching.
