Click on the image above to go to the Professional Learning sessions (two) run by VCAA in February 2023. Offered as being for the VCE, it is a resource that can be used by all teachers, not only teachers of VCE.

There is a video and accompanying slides for each session. 

Use the first one (dated 15 February 2023) as an introduction to understand and develop strategies for how to respectfully and appropriately embed Aboriginal perspectives within VCE studies.

Use the second one (dated 22 February 2023) as an introduction to how to work with Indigenous students in your classroom.
