Pedagogy in the Pub
The Monday evening speaker will be Ms Hayley McQuire, National Coordinator of the National Indigenous Youth Education Coalition. She will be joined by other members of the Coalition to share what they have learned after a successful year meeting with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students across Australia.
This event provides opportunity for conference participants and others from the Greater Brisbane region working in education to engage with members of the National Indigenous Youth Education Coalition (NIYEC, www.niyec.org) and to open a discussion about how educators and researchers might engage with and support the work of NIYEC.
NIYEC is a collective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth from diverse nations and backgrounds, who are committed to advocating for their Indigenous rights to education. NIYEC has just completed a year meeting and engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students throughout 2019, through a number of face-to-face workshops – a Listening Caravan – to understand their hopes and desires for the future of education. NIYEC centres the voices and energy of First Nations communities in working for better education opportunities and systems in Australia. NIYEC recognises the value of education, however, understands that historically education was a key tool of colonisation to assimilate and control Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and that this continues to impact families and communities today.
All welcome, light refreshments provided. Registration is important as numbers are limited.

Date: Saturday 30th November

Location: Level 5, E Block, Queensland University of Technology
The FREE event will provide opportunities for researchers, young people, teachers, principals,
community stakeholders and other practitioners to engage in collective and collegial dialogue
around concepts that are often framed as "difficult" knowledges in educational spaces (e.g. gender,
sexualities, social justice and activism). For researchers, this dialogue might also extend to a
deeper engagement with how "difficult" knowledges impact on methodological decision-making
processes and practices.
The event features a keynote presentation from Professor Louisa Allen, Auckland University
who specialises in research in the areas of sexualities, gender, young people and schooling
and innovative research methodologies which seek to engage hard to reach research populations.
In addition to presentations and panel discussions, the event will include arts-based workshops and
smaller break-out discussion sessions as a means to generate discussions and focus on action orientated
