Schools Engagement

One of the key objectives of the Korea Research Centre is to support local primary and secondary schools' Cross Curriculum Priority Area materials, as well as Korean language education activities in Western Australia. We work closely with Mount Lawley Senior High School in particular. If you are interested in exploring opportunities for support in the form of visiting talks by our area specialist on topics such as Australia-Korea relations, Korean Popular Culture, Career Opportunities with Language Studies, please don't hesitate to get in touch. See below for specific resources and opportunities for your school and students to get involved!

KF-UWA Korean Studies Workshop for HASS and Language Teachers

August 27, 2021

The Workshop provided opportunities for educators to reflect on how to introduce Asia-related content into the HASS curriculum. It also outlined opportunities for funding and support to establish Korean-language courses in schools. The participants were provided with talks on Korean society, culture, history, inter-Korean relations and Australia-Korea relations, as well as an overview of challenges relating to Asia Curriculum. A recording of the event is available on YouTube.

Ready-to-use hand-outs and classroom materials to use in teaching activities in Western Australian classrooms, based on the presentations, are available on request (krc@uwa.edu.au).
