ANU Language Teaching Forum - Hindi teaching and the challenges of teaching on-campus and on-line

CAIS - events - Wed, 2014-04-09 10:03
Event type:  Seminar Date and time:  Wednesday, May 7, 2014 - 16:15 - 17:15 Venue:  Room W3.03, Level 3, Baldessin Precinct Building #110, ANU Speaker:  Dr Peter Friedlander, College of Asia & the Pacific, ANU

In this paper Peter Friedlander will argue that current developments in Hindi teaching on-campus and on-line have to be seen in relation to the history of how Hindi teaching has developed in Australia. He will contrast the demands for Hindi in terms of expectations set out in the Australia in the Asia Century white paper (2012) and the reality of the expectations that students have expressed to him whilst studying on-campus and through distance and online programs.

Authoritarian governments and remnants of the old regimes that were toppled in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and Tunisia are opposed to popular demands for genuine political and economic reform.

Engaging effectively with Indigenous Australians: What does the research tell us?

CAEPR events - Mon, 2014-03-03 08:30
16/04/2014 Janet Hunt

Trends in public service reform, especially the 2010 Declaration of Open Government, encourage a ‘culture of engagement’ and collaboration with citizens. Since 2004-5 there have been a variety of approaches developed to improve such ‘engagement’ with Indigenous people by various jurisdictions, but Indigenous people frequently express frustration with how governments engage with them, and ‘consultation fatigue’ is a common outcome. This paper provides an overview of the research-based evidence on what works and doesn’t work in relation to ‘engagement’ with Indigenous Australians.
