この書籍について

This open access book explores the transformative experiences of participants in the University of Sydney’s National Centre for Cultural Competence (NCCC) programs. The establishment of the NCCC was viewed as a critical point of departure for developing an institution-wide agenda of cultural competence. The NCCC’s work since its inception reflects efforts to lay important foundations for cultural change at the University. 
With the ultimate aim of establishing cultural competence as an agent for transformational change and social justice education, the NCCC has steadily expanded its research and teaching work both within and beyond the University of Sydney. Further, it has developed foundational resources to support and encourage University staff to integrate cultural competence philosophy and pedagogy in their curricula, teaching and research. This includes the ability to engage meaningfully with the cultures, histories and contemporary issues in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The NCCC programs have been designed to encourage participants to learn about who they are and how they can positively impact the transformational change the University has begun.
The book presents participants’ reflections on their experiences at the organisational and personal level. Readers will gain insights into a range of topics including cultural competence, communities of practice, policy implementation, and transformative leadership at the interface between higher education and professional lives.

著者について

Dr Jack Frawley is an Academic Leader at the University of Sydney's National Centre for Cultural Competence. Jack has held several senior academic positions at the Australian Catholic University, Charles Darwin University and the University of Sydney and is an Adjunct at the Batchelor Institute. His research and published work focus on social inclusion especially in the areas of leadership studies, program evaluation, teacher education, and minority education. He has worked extensively in Aboriginal Australia as well as the South Pacific and Southeast Asia.
Dr Emma Sarian is an early career researcher who was recently awarded her PhD by Macquarie University, where she also completed a Master of Research in 2014. Her doctoral thesis explored the historical rise of identity politics in Australia, bringing together archival research on the women’s and Aboriginal rights movements in the 20th century with contemporary political theories of identity. Emma currently works as an Associate Lecturer at the National Centre for Cultural Competence (NCCC), where her role spans both the research and delivery of cultural competence programs. Her research in this role focuses on theories of cultural competence pedagogy and evaluation, seeking to establish a strong theoretical foundation for determining best practices in cultural competence development. Dr Tran Nguyen is an Associate Lecturer at the University of Sydney’s National Centre for Cultural Competence. Prior to coming to the University of Sydney, she was a Chevening/Cambridge scholar in Development Studies (MPhil degree) at the University of Cambridge, UK, and completed a PhD in Sociology at Macquarie University. Her research expertise and interests include inter-ethnic relations, cultural competence, migration, employability, internationalisation in higher education, employment services and welfare state policies. Tran has published in leading national and international journals in the areas of intercultural studies, social issues and sociology. Her previous experience includes working with UNESCO and in the Australian welfare sector. She has also served as a reviewer for prominent national journals, and for book chapters related to her working fields.
