General Information

Overview

This unit examines the interplay between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and learning, and those experienced at university. First, we examine the concepts of culture and identity, before going on to look at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, identities and ways of learning, followed immediately by an exploration of university culture and ways of learning. This allows us to examine ways in which university culture can work together with Indigenous Australian cultures, combining ways of learning, and our various learning experiences. Finally, we explore university values and the topic of racism at university.

You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade).
