The EAL/D Hub is an online professional development course for teachers. It was developed collaboratively by experts from across Australia.
It’s about providing high-quality education to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who have first languages other than Standard Australian English and are learning Standard Australian English as an additional language or dialect.
The EAL/D Hub supports teachers to build their knowledge and capabilities in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and the Capability Framework – Teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander EAL/D learners.

Artwork: The Spirit Net - hand-stitched fabric, 2012 The Spirit Net was created when I was travelling throughout India in 2012. I created it while reflecting on my home country and our connections with Mother Earth. The spirit net depicts the movement of our waters, mountains, rocks, deserts and rainforests. It captures the spirit of our land with the spirit of our people today, combining our connections as one.
