History of Indigenous Education - INED801

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations have been sharing knowledge for over 65,000 years. This unit explores many of these older ways of teaching and learning and inter-generational knowledge transmission. This unit also examines how Western education practices and policies have impacted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people since colonisation. Racism and the exclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from various public-school systems is investigated.
