General Information

Overview

This unit provides students with a broad overview of the education of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia. It begins by looking at traditional ways of educating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, before examining a history of Indigenous education since the colonisation of Australia by white settlers, and seeing how racism still has a major influence on Indigenous education. Students will look at the impact of social factors, such as health issues, housing, remoteness, and poverty on education; and also see how different cultural factors, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait identities, different ways of teaching and learning, and language in particular, affect Indigenous education in Australia. Students will look more specifically at teaching and learning in Indigenous communities, including some case studies. Finally, the unit allows students to explore trends in Indigenous school education, Indigenous vocational education and training (VET) and TAFE, and Indigenous tertiary education in more detail, including the influence that Indigenous Australians have had on mainstream education.
