Aboriginal Education Issues and Approaches - EDUC388

This unit is designed to develop students' knowledge and understanding of those issues impacting the delivery of Indigenous education in Australia. Invasion and colonisation, the effects of government policies, the stolen generations, and the developing relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians are explored in the context of learning and teaching in the classroom. Approaches for teaching Indigenous students are explored, along with the requirement to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures across the curriculum. Aboriginal people involved in education introduce many of these issues. The unit aims to create a learning environment where students can gain confidence in how they talk about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
