Teaching from Country

Aboriginal knowledge authorities from remote communities have had little opportunity to contribute actively to academic teaching in Australian universities.

This program sets up and evaluates distance education in reverse: the Yolŋu (northeast Arnhemland Aboriginal) lecturers are in remote places and the students of Yolŋu languages, culture and fine arts, are (mostly) on campus.
