EDED11458 - Indigenous Studies and Learning

General Information

Unit Synopsis

The unit Indigenous Studies and Learning develops knowledge and understanding of historical factors that impact on the engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners and families in education and care settings. The policy and action of governments and media representations are analysed, discussed and compared with indigenous perspectives on race relations and past events with an emphasis on developing understanding and appreciation of contemporary Indigenous Australian identity and culture. Pedagogies for working effectively and appropriately with indigenous Australians, families and communities including current systemic initiatives and policies are evaluated in terms of their suitability for students in rural, remote and urban Australian communities. You will consider Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander world views and your own and others attitudes to Indigenous people to defend the selection of teaching strategies aimed at promoting reconciliation and effective learning relationships with students, families and communities.
