Indonesian Teachers Conference
The Australian Society of Indonesian Language Educators conference, held in Adelaide over the October long weekend, was a great success bringing together Indonesian teachers from all education sectors.
The Board sponsored five teachers who attended workshops and presentations from a diverse range of presenters including a keynote address from former Indonesian journalist Hamish McDonald as well a panel discussion on state and territory directions in Indonesian language education in Australia. Our sponsored teachers' reports will be available to read on our website in early November.
