Rural Futures Matter

Course description

Vibrant, productive rural communities are integral to the long-term sustainability of Australia.  People who live and work in rural and remote Australia, therefore, must have access to high quality, relevant and affordable education and other critical human services, training and care at all ages and stages of life.

The aim of this 2 hour workshop is to assist academic staff to incorporate understandings about rural/non-metropolitan contexts and challenges into their teaching, assessments and supervision.  An overview of some of the key issues and challenges of rural, regional and remote communities, especially as they relate to essential human services will be presented.  The session will then be opened for questions, discussion and sharing of practices and ideas.
