Teaching and Learning with BlackWords

Black Words logo

Teaching and Learning with BlackWords – an AustLit professional development opportunity for school educators and librarians is coming to the State Library of Queensland in Brisbane. AustLit are then heading to Thursday Island, Yarrabah, Woorabinda and, later in the year, Longreach.

Teachers and librarians from local and nearby communities are welcome to come and discover more about AustLit and to learn how to use BlackWords to help meet Australian Curriculum requirements.

Joining the convenors, Professor Anita Heiss (author and educator) and Director of AustLit, Kerry Kilner, is the well-known English Teacher Guru, Lindsay Williams. Writers from each location will join the team to give their perspectives on hearing Indigenous voices in the classroom. Catering is provided at each location. Our registration form provides an option to list dietary requirements.

AustLit are offering a limited number of free tickets for Queensland public library and Indigenous Knowledge Centre (IKC) staff. Please email josephine.musumeci@slq.qld.gov.au to register your interest.
