Steiner Education Australia 2021 GLaM Seminar
Enabling a whole school commitment to developing and implementing RAP with Stephanie Woerde, Narragunnawali
Wednesday, 23 June, 2021 4.00 – 5.30pm (NSW Time) via Zoom
The SEA GLaM Seminar Series sessions are open for all staff and board members of SEA member schools, including school leaders, business and finance staff, wellbeing and support staff, teachers and school board and council members.
Stephanie Woerde has a background in community development and is a big believer in the important link between early years educational development and community development more broadly. She enjoys engaging in critical applied research activities and deep community-level consultation and collaboration. In 2016, Stephanie was awarded the Peter Mitchell Churchill Fellowship to inspire best practice in the design/implementation of Language Nest-style programs in Australia. Her research built on key learnings developed during her experience of supporting the establishment of the Miriwoong Language Nest program – a culturally responsive education initiative centred on First Language immersion and now delivered to more than 400 children in the East Kimberley town of Kununurra. As a member of Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali team since 2016, currently leading the team’s Research and Evaluation strategy, Stephanie continues to be a strong advocate for acknowledging the continuing significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions, and working towards a brighter future of reconciliation in education, and across Australia.
Stephanie will lead an interactive session for participants outlining the context and concept of reconciliation in education, and explore practical action schools can take using the Narragunnawali RAP framework.
Participants can share their progress on their school’s reconciliation journey, outlining projects undertaken, achievements, challenges and how they were overcome.
