This project aimed to increase the numbers of Indigenous people enrolling in the University’s teacher education programs. The development of the video clip was part of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Strategic Plan for the School of Education, which focuses on increasing Indigenous staff numbers, increasing the numbers of Indigenous students in higher degrees, professional development for academic staff concerning Indigenous knowledges and integrating resulting learnings into their courses to reflect the Australian Professional Teaching Standards.
MATSITI evaluation conclusions
The video is professional and attractive with Indigenous teachers telling their stories.
There is real value in involving Indigenous people in projects for which they are also the target audience.
