You are cordially invited to join a discussion around the implications of the 2020 National Indigenous Languages Report https://www.arts.gov.au/what-we-do/indigenous-arts-and-languages/nationa... for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, educators, policy-makers, policy implementers and policy evaluators. The discussion is hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language (CoEDL), the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) (Australian National University) the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), and First Languages Australia (FLA).
Speakers will provide briefings on the research that underpins NILR and the need for a new national Indigenous Languages framework. This will be followed by small group discussions of the potential of the NILR findings and the new approach to language data for areas of work (e.g. education, interpreting, policy evaluation), and for the new Closing the Gap targets.
