PDC95907 - First Nations Cross Cultural Competency for Students: It Starts With Understanding

Course Details

Course Summary

The micro-credential you are about to be involved in, is designed to promote a better understanding of Australia’s First Nations people, and to offer you an opportunity to learn about the culture and history of the language groups that are the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of contemporary Australia.  The knowledge you will take away from your participation will involve you in the reconciliation process that is underway across our nation. The cultural awareness you will gain is a part of the CQUniversity commitment to Indigenous Australians in every community where the University serves. You will learn skills required to have inclusive interactions with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, fellow students and community members.  A big part of this micro-credential is focused on how to engage with First Nations people in the workplace, the classroom and in the broader community in culturally safe and appropriate ways. 

This online micro-credential provides a non-creditable micro-credential and digital badge which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.

Our micro-credentials are aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Course Structures

Study Mode Definitions

  • Online: Online courses provide the flexibility to study without normally requiring a student to visit a campus. Course content is studied through a number of means including the use of online discussion forums, electronic library resources, by contacting lecturers and teachers, and receiving study materials online/electronically. Work integrated learning, including placements, may be included in some courses.
  • On-campus: Students studying in on-campus mode typically are expected to attend and participate in regular, structured on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the University’s academic term. These activities may include lectures, tutorials, workshops and practice, online or other activities and normally will be timetabled at a CQUniversity campus or approved delivery site.
  • Mixed Mode: Students studying in mixed mode will participate in a combination of online learning activities in addition to site-specific learning activities, which may include residential schools, co-op placements and/or work-integrated learning as a compulsory requirement of a unit. The additional site-specific learning activities are what differentiates a mixed-mode unit from an online unit.
