A model for small, remote, indigenous communities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


This chapter will outline the history of community-based, flexible models of teacher education in remote Indigenous communities in Australia with a view to exploring how and why these models emerged. It will then explore the changing face of teacher education today beyond but including that for Indigenous people, particularly in light of the shifts occurring within education associated with globalisation, nationalised standards, the knowledge economy and the opportunities and obstacles whicharise through online learning.
