The Transcultural and Indigenous Pedagogies Research Group provides an exciting and rewarding research experience for Higher Degree by Research students, early and mid-career researchers, research fellows and our collaborating partners. Our researchers work with migrant, refugee, international student and Indigenous communities to develop culturally responsive pedagogies, collaborate with world leaders in their discipline, and help people flourish in their lives.

The Transcultural and Indigenous Pedagogies Research Group includes domestic and international Higher Degree by Research students. Enrolments are now open for all postgraduate programs offered at USC.

The University of the Sunshine Coast also offers Research Fellowships and research student scholarships.

Our projects focus on Transcultural and Indigenous Pedagogies across a range of educational sectors, including Higher Education, International Education, P-12 and Early Childhood Education. Transcultural pedagogies recognise cultural difference as a creative force that enables the facilitation of culturally responsive new knowledge and respectful policies and practices. Indigenous pedagogies focus on the cultures, histories, rights, interests, knowledge's and perspectives of Indigenous peoples globally and are committed to decolonising the curriculum in all levels of Education.

If you would like to be part of this dynamic and stimulating environment then please contact the Leaders of the Transcultural and Indigenous Pedagogies Research Group, Professor Catherine Manathunga (School of Education) or Associate Professor Maria Raciti (School of Business).
