We will present some of our journey as two people thinking about what it could mean to Indigenise tertiary Mathematics curricula. We have been working in this space separately and together for some time now, and part of this talk will be the story of steps towards building that partnership. We will share some of our learnings, whilst also welcoming input from the audience from their thoughts and experiences, because we know that there is more than one story here, and more than one way to work in this space.

See here for details for connecting via a H.323/SIP videoconferencing room.

Seminar recording: will be available from the seminar website afterwards
