SSiSTEMIK Masterclass


SSiSTEMIK Masterclasses are designed to be run over 2 x 2-day sessions 5-6 weeks apart.  This allows participants to undertake the cycle of deepening and designing research with time to consolidate core understanding and forward thinking.



Our Indigenous Knowledge experts will take the participants on a journey that highlights their knowledge systems and how that is relatable to each community across the country.  Through place-based learning and sitting circle, participants will deepen their knowledge to design their own research challenge with access to Indigenous Knowledge Experts and Stronger Smarter Research and Impact team members.  These challenges will be taken back to schools and workplaces to improve student’s engagement and outcomes in the STEM classroom.

These Masterclasses are best suited to educators and leaders who are teaching or leading implementation of the STEM Curriculum.  Researchers or people that are interested in learning more about STEM and Indigenous communities will also find this Masterclass beneficial.

Victor Steffensen is an Expert Indigenous fire practitioner, filmmaker, and educator who plays a strong role in environmental and community cultural well-being.

For our students for our people, Indigenous Knowledge (IK) needs to be at the core of Culturally Responsive Curriculums (CRCs) and core of Culturally Responsive Pedagogies (CRP). Victor is a leader in both CRCs and CRPs.

Over time he has worked on Traditional fire (IK) projects in Qld, NSW, VIC, WA, and Tasmania. This important work continues today, driven by the growing number of communities reconnecting their culture with the country through Aboriginal re management. Victor enacts CRPs and CRCs in his course deliveries.

From 2010 he developed the award-winning Living Knowledge Place, a cultural online education site that connects the community to the classroom. The program is based on traditional teaching practices and learning by example, which has proven successful in re-introducing traditional fire and other cultural practices.
