INDG11005 - Indigenous Ways of Learning

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This course is designed for students with an interest in Australian Indigenous education and training and will appeal to those with Certificate IV in Workplace Assessment or those working with, or seeking to work with, Indigenous people in a community, workplace or other educational or organisational capacity. Initially students gain an understanding of Indigenous teaching and learning prior to invasion and as a result, an appreciation of contemporary issues for Indigenous students and their teachers in educational and training contexts today. Students gain an awareness of the cultural and social aspects which may influence learning cultures and related life experiences. An awareness of the Indigenous learner is acquired through the opportunity to explore the Indigenous education journey through the examination and evaluation of a variety of approaches including practical scenarios.

Assessment Task Weighting

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. 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). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
