Abstract

This report is an evaluation of the Professional Development Seminar conducted in Cairns, for the Traditional Indigenous Games LEAP strategy, through Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Services, Department of Communities, Cairns.

Three key objectives for the seminar in Traditional Indigenous Games (TIGs) were identified as target areas for the expansion of TIGs. The first objective was to increase cultural competencies by triangulating components of knowledge, skills and attitudes of participants. The second objective related to increasing the confidence of participants in delivering TIGs. The third objective was to lay the foundations for showcasing the games within the local community and develop deeper understandings of and respect for Indigenous culture. In this way, these three objectives would pave the way for reconciliation within the community.

The report provides a summary of the sessions and how the activities contribute to achieving the objectives of the seminar. The results of the participants' evaluation of the two-day seminar provide a measure of the degree to which the seminar objectives were achieved for each participant.
