NAIDOC Week (Pre-Recorded Webinar)

NAIDOC Week is celebrated annually around Australia both by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities and non - Indigenous Australians. This significant event is also commonly acknowledged by early learning educators, however many struggle deciding how to include this event in a meaningful way.

Join us in this pre-recorded webinar tailored for early learning educators who are passionate about embedding cultural awareness and inclusivity in their educational programs. Facilitated by Jessica Staines, the Director of the multi-award-winning Koori Curriculum. 

This webinar will guide you through the meaningful celebration of NAIDOC Week—its history, significance, and practical applications in early learning environments.

This workshop covers:

The origins and evolution of NAIDOC Week, from its early beginnings to its current celebration of the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

A strong understanding of NAIDOC Week's significance and how to celebrate it authentically and respectfully within early learning settings.

Practical strategies to integrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives throughout the year, not just during NAIDOC Week, to ensure a holistic and inclusive educational approach.

How to connect with local Aboriginal communities to enhance the cultural competence of both educators and learners, fostering a deeper respect and understanding of Indigenous cultures.

Insights into respectful and educational activities that move beyond traditional crafts, focusing on meaningful cultural immersion and learning.

Resources and planning ideas that align with the Early Years Learning Framework, helping you to weave cultural perspectives into everyday learning and play effectively.
