Educator Yarns Summit
The Educator Yarns summit takes you deeper into the yarns shared by Educators who contributed to the Educator Yarns book.
Hear about the lessons Educators have learned on their journey to embed Aboriginal perspectives in their pedagogies and early learning centres.
Each Educator has a unique story to tell about their journey towards building cultural confidence and competence, providing real-life examples, practical strategies, and inspirational messages.
The Educator Yarns summit is a collection of relatable stories from the heart of our profession. This sharing aims to build Educators' cultural confidence and capability, equipping one to approach the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives with vigour and bravery.
The Educator Yarns summit launches on the 14th March 2022.
