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. The goals of the network are to:
- Share and build models of good practice within the discipline of Australian Indigenous studies
- Share the outcomes of teaching and learning research within the discipline
- Explore and address national higher education priorities in teaching and learning Australian Indigenous studies
- Build relationships between scholars within the broad disciplinary field of Australian Indigenous studies
- Build relationships with leading international Indigenous studies scholars, including those in New Zealand and Canada
- Support the work of scholars within the discipline, including the development of early career researchers
The network represents in many ways a call from educators in the higher education sector to enter into a more progressive dialogue to bring about a disciplined-based engagement with Indigenous Australian histories, cultures and experiences.
