Submit a Teaching Resource

Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Timor-Leste Studies Initiative – Teaching and Learning Resources portal. The purpose of the portal is to provide a robust body of resources related to teaching and learning about Timor-Leste.

Most teaching resources fall into one of three general categories:

  1. Teaching strategies: practical instructional strategies that include applicable techniques or lesson plans.
  2. Teaching reflections: reflections on theoretical, philosophical or ideological issues relating to teaching and learning about Timor-Leste.
  3. Teaching tools: a tool (film, website, worksheet, article, book or other material) that can be of use to educators).

The primary expected readership for the teaching resource series are scholars and faculty in higher education (and some secondary education) as well as instructors-in-training.
