Event description

Associate Professor Robyn Heckenberg

Wed 26 June, 12:30-1:30pm

Dean, Learning & Teaching

Centre for Aboriginal Studies

Robyn has worked in the Higher Education sector for a goodly amount of time, as well as the TAFE system, and within many community projects and endeavours regarding social justice, environment and Country and accompanying Human Rights. As a Wiradjuri academic she has been privileged to be given the opportunity to work in Noongar Country, and W.A. more broadly. She has worked in universities in a number of states in Australia, as well as being an Alumni of Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (formerly Batchelor College); University of Newcastle; La Trobe University and Monash University.

Upper most in her expectations of becoming a better self is supporting ways for Indigenous Australians to secure contentment and to flourish by decolonizing non-Indigenous viewpoints, and include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories within the national narrative in a fair and equitable way. Robyn is the Dean of Learning and Teaching within the Centre for Aboriginal Studies. Ass.Prof. Heckenberg is a Cathedral Scholar of St Georges Cathedral Perth.
