Biography

Associate Professor Peter J. Anderson is from the Walpiri and Murinpatha First Nations in the Northern Territory.

His research theorizes the understandings of the organisational value of academic freedom in Australian universities and also more broadly in the polar south. He researches in the areas of

  • organisational leadership
  • Indigenous peoples’ education
  • teacher and academic professional development

He has been funded through Office of Learning and Teaching grants. The first (now completed) was to investigate the improvement of initial teacher education providers capacity to prepare pre-service teachers to be confident, competent and culturally responsive to work in remote locations with high Indigenous Populations.

His current research project is examining how to best engage and partner with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents and community to improve student outcomes.
