New Cultural Heritage Management course to introduce professionals to Australian good practice

I’d like to announce that I will be convening and facilitating an online cultural heritage management course, with the support of some great speakers, through the Sustainable Minerals Institute. The course will run from the 17th August to the 4th September.

Indigenous Cultural Heritage Management: Australian resources sector will introduce resources sector professionals to the fundamental processes, practices and requirements designed to ensure cultural heritage is managed effectively and respectfully throughout the life of an operation.

Across three modules, paced over three weeks, attendees will engage with interactive learning material on anthropology, archaeology and the methods used in both fields, Australian legislation, the preparation of cultural heritage management plans, and international standards.

I’m pleased to reveal the complete list of guest speakers, whose expertise and perspectives will help bring the course to the next level: Professor Bronwyn Fredericks, UQ Pro-Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Engagement; Vanessa Elliot, Social and economic development specialist; Associate Professor Nick Bainton, Anthropology of large-scale resource extraction, UQ; Rodger Barnes, Indigenous engagement and participation, UQ; Dr Kelsey Lowe, Archaeological Heritage, UQ.

While the course is designed to be accessible, the aim is for attendees to leave with a lasting understanding of the subject matter. Engagement will be facilitated through interactive learning assessments at the end of each module, after which participants will receive a course completion certificate.
