Subject Area: Education

This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the policy and professional requirements, and pedagogical practices, that support effective teaching and learning within the landscape of Indigenous education. The course will introduce students to current research and theoretical frameworks that are known to assist educators with developing the skills and knowledge to critically reflect on the role and influence of cultural beliefs and perspectives on schooling practices. A central focus for the course is preparing students to meet the Australian Professional Standards that directly concern Indigenous education: the teaching of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students (AITSL 1.4), and the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, histories and heritage across the curriculum (AITSL 2.4).
