Research and Indigenous schools and communities: An account of one project

Presenters: from Kurongkurl Katitjin: School of Indigenous Australian Studies
Edith Cowan University

Associate Professor Gary Partington
Ann Galloway
Dr John Godfrey
Graeme Gower

The presenters, who are all located at Edith Cowan University, are working on a major Strategic Partnership research project that is a collaboration between the Department of Education, Catholic Education Commission and Independent Aboriginal Schools with matching funding from the Australian Research Council.

The project is examining the effectiveness of teaching strategies to counteract the influence of conductive hearing loss on Indigenous students with research sites in the metropolitan area, the Kimberley and Goldfields.

Complex issues of gaining entry, collecting valid data and reporting are involved. Sociopolitical issues also are involved in keeping the research on track.

Light refreshments will be served and there will be opportunities for discussion and interaction.

RSVP and for further details contact Susan Beltman beltman@murdoch.edu.au
