Monash University Publishing: Advancing knowledge

Developing Sustainable Education in Regional Australia

Edited by Andrew Gunstone


Book launch

Developing Sustainable Education in Regional Australia
was launched on Monday 9 December 2013
at Monash University, Gippsland Campus


This book challenges current thinking about education by emphasising the importance of an educational approach capable of taking account of the background and learning experiences of both the student and educator. Learning, it is argued, needs to be interdisciplinary and holistic. It needs to take place within personalised learning environments. And it needs to take account of the particular nature of rural and regional knowledge, and knowledge requirements. Sections of Developing Sustainable Education examine, in turn, university, secondary school and Indigenous education.
