Indigenous Australian musician and educator Kutcha Edwards was a keynote highlight at RMIT School of Education’s planning forum.
Kutcha Edwards, indigenous songman and educator gave a keynote speech and workshop at the annual School of Education Planning and Learning day on 11 September.
The focus of the day was on connecting with and supporting learners.
Educators from across the School involved in vocational, primary and secondary teacher education heard Kutcha's presentation, Who’s your mob? Where you from?
Kutcha spoke of his own family and history, and the challenge to understand Indigenous ways of being and knowing.
"My job is to drop the pebble in the water and to hope there will be a ripple effect," Kutcha said.
He also sang a song from the new album he is working on for release soon.
The Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor, Learning and Teaching DSC College, Andrea Chester, gave the opening address and presented six School of Education staff with certificates recognising their achievements in becoming College nominees for the 2014 University Teaching awards.
