Other resources


We have been holding a continuing series of training and lectures series for secondary teachers of Indonesian. This program is co-sponsored by Department of Education and Training ACT. In 2010 Dr Tim Hassall was the convener, and doctoral candidate Kirrilee Hughes organised the lecture series.

Our staff members have also been regularly invited to visit local schools and give seminars there, or to host school students who wish to visit the campus and have a taste of a seminar at a University setting.

Since 2010 we have collaborated with the National National Film and Sound Archive in holding a workshop and a series of film screening under the theme of "Regional Intersection" (visit our events gallery to view images).
