Aboriginal Education: Past, Present and Future

Unit Code: 102810

Contact hours: 10 hours per week

Unit Description

This unit builds the capacity of students to work in culturally competent and sensitive ways in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education in primary schools.

You will enhance your understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups including culture, histories, languages and identity. In doing so, you will also examine the social and cultural contexts that influence engagement by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and communities in schooling.

You will also explore ways of improving engagement through effective school culture, curriculum and community approaches. This includes an investigation into the protocols for successfully working with Aboriginal children, families and communities in educational settings to maximise learning outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
