Collaborative Teaching Initiative in Fiji

With colleagues from the University of Canberra and the University of Western Australia, and through funding support from the New Colombo Plan we have embarked on a teaching project that involves Indigenous Australian students being given an opportunity to learn about Indigenous Fijian society. The first teaching program (July 2017) will occur on Viti Levu, Fiji’s largest island, with travel to various cultural sites and places. The itinerary includes travel to urban, rural and remote regions of Viti Levu, with visits and interactions with cultural institutions, businesses, universities, and villages.  A blog has been generated to capture the experiences of the teaching project This site features the stories of 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander University students as they prepare and take part in the program.
