Held over two days, the program, called tunapri teaching, included seven Aboriginal students from high schools around Tasmania learning about their culture, the education system and the need for Aboriginal teachers to combine the two.
The program was developed in a community context, with Elders, educators, artists and parents working with staff from the university’s Faculty of Education.

The tunapri teaching program is supported by the MATSITI Project and runs until the end of 2015 – see earlier posts about this program.
‘Tunapri’ means ‘to teach, to know’ in Palawa-Kani language.
