Recently, I hosted a forum with more than fifty Southside teachers and Principals aimed at identifying specific areas of concern and generating ideas on how to improve the facilitation of international languages teaching.
We noted common interests in relation to providing quality teaching and learning and the growing importance for Australian businesses and education providers to engage with the Asia-Pacific.
Following our discussion, I called for feedback from the participants on how we can improve things in our own community.
I also recently spoke at an Asialink event at Melbourne University about the importance of developing an Asia-Literate Australia.
