CDU Public Lecture Series - Transforming education 


Professor Carole Kayrooz, Dean of the Faculty of Education, Health and Science, will outline the challenges to the delivery of quality education in teaching and nursing in the second of Charles Darwin University’s free public lectures on October 10.

Entitled Transforming education and public health training in the NT, Professor Kayrooz’s lecture will discuss the challenges in both the Territory and national context.

She says that the Faculty of Education, Health and Science at CDU is using several strategic approaches to furthering both teaching and nursing.

‘These approaches involve strong staff who can lead others to position curriculum firmly within the Northern Territory. Indigenous input must be embedded throughout the curriculum,’ she says.

Professor Kayrooz believes that authentic partnerships between the University and the community provide the foundation for development.  ‘Flexibility and accessibility for learning are just as important as pathways between vocational education and training and higher education,’ she says.

‘These steps hope to answer the question of how education, particularly in the Territory context, can be turned around to deliver accessible and relevant higher education and vocational education and training for teaching and nursing.’

Her lecture will be at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory at 6pm.

Entry is free. Light refreshments will be served afterwards.

CDU’s Local Experts: Global Issues series continues each Tuesday in October, offering a platform for university experts to air their views on critical issues in contemporary thinking.
