In planning for personalised, developmentally, and culturally appropriate teaching and learning, the Walker Learning pedagogy ensures that opportunities for the development of the whole child are authentic, relevant, and meaningful regardless of their age, culture, family context, socioeconomic background, or geographical location. Many teachers want to do this but may be unsure of where to start.

Join us and our guest presenters Mikayla King. Mikayla is a Kalkadoon and Dutch woman who was born on Whadjuk Country of the Noongar Nation. Her experience in education spans over a decade in various roles including Aboriginal Islander Education Officer, Classroom Teacher and Deputy Prinicipal. Currently, Mikayla is lecturing at Edith Cowan University whilst completing her PhD. She has been recognised on a local and national level for her impact in the education realm.

This professional development opportunity infuses practical experiences and stories of Mikayla's teaching experience on Whadjuk Country/Perth. The processes and theoretical frameworks can be translated to suit a range of context in consultation with traditional owners, local Aboriginal educators and cultural consultants.

In this PD, Mikayla shares her first-hand knowledge and experience with you. The Embedding Aboriginal Perspectives Professional Learning session invites critical professional reflection and provides the opportunity for educators to understand the importance of embedding Aboriginal perspectives into daily teaching practice.

Supported by research and a range of examples of responsive, and appropriate resources, this session provides inspiration and practical ideas you can start using in your preschool and early primary setting with confidence. A perfect session, Australia-wide, for staff ready to address areas of inclusion and diversity as part of their professional development goals.
