Australian Society of Indonesian Language Educators

INDOVASI: menuju paradigma baru
Flinders University, Adelaide
Ibu Karen Bailey writes:
It was good to be back in Adelaide where ASILE was established in 1994. ASILE is the peak professional body of Indonesian educators in Australia. Its aim is to promote the interests and report on the research and practice of Indonesian language teachers from early childhood through to tertiary level.
Professor Ronny Noor, Education and Culture Attache from the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra, opened the conference by saying
that this year's theme of Indovasi: menuju paradigma baru, was ‘indeed very relevant and necessary with the current condition of Indonesian language teaching in Australia within the last 15 years experiencing a sharp decline’.
Highlights of the conference included:
Here’s hoping that we can have a greater number of Sandgropers at the 2018 Conference. The Host State and timing will be announced by the ASILE 2016 Conference Committee early in 2017…
