General Information

Overview

You will deeply consider education and learning in the cultural interface, that is where Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures have met and continue to meet. As you journey through the unit, you develop your awareness on: how rights of Indigenous Australians were disregarded under colonisation; Indigenous peoples’ struggle for justice; and how non-Indigenous colonial systems have resisted ceding control. You reflect critically and ethically on non-Indigenous systems; the need for decolonisation and how to enable the rights of First Nation people, as defined by (UNDRIP- United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples). Your learning journey is one of knowledge acquisition and enabling your critical and ethical reflection as you deeply consider colonisation and then decolonisation, including the role of discourse in this space. In this unit you will develop your conceptual thinking to enable the ideas in the unit to foster your future role as an active and socially innovative citizen and professional, capable of decolonisation and so fostering a more just society where First Nation rights, and non-Indigenous awareness and obligations, are brought to the fore.
