Program Description

The histories, traditions and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their experiences of injustices following colonisation are largely unknown. However, there is a growing momentum among Australians to develop a fuller understanding and awareness of First Nations histories and culture.

Truth-Telling is not a way to seek confrontation about the past. It is a positive pathway to a different, shared future. Join us to learn more.

Program Outcomes

Participants will:

  • strengthen knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture
  • understand the concept of truth-telling – what it means for us in Tasmania, what it means for us as teachers and what it might mean for learners
  • develop skills to embed truth-telling in your teaching
