Remote Indigenous HE: evidence briefs

This booklet called "Evidence based actions to support remote Indigenous participation in Higher Education" presents a series of Evidence Briefs that summarise the findings of the WCE initiative and offer guidance for policy makers and practitioners with interest in remote Indigenous education.

About the Evidence Briefs

The Evidence Briefs represent the major themes that emerged from the initiative, many of which relate to the schooling provided in the six communities WCE worked with. Whilst they are specific to the communities studied, they provide useful lessons about comparable remote contexts. The Evidence Briefs are as follows:

  1. Taking a mutually respectful approach to practice
  2. Forming partnerships with impact
  3. Building parental engagement with formal education
  4.  (a) Providing culturally safe school environments, (b) Employing culturally competent teachers and principals
  5. Incorporating Indigenous curriculum and pedagogy
  6. Investing in English language, literacy and numeracy (LLN)
  7. Ensuring intercultural education practice
  8. Mobilising Indigenous leadership and governance
  9. Supporting mentoring for Indigenous students
  10.  Maximising the contribution of local Indigenous teachers

​I joined the team in April 2016, just in time for the team meeting at Tennant Creek, where it was realised that the team needed someone to analyse the data that was being generated across the different communities.
