This online Indigenous Australian Education unit is a must for primary school teachers and early childhood educators, particularly those who work in schools with a high Indigenous student population.
Delivered by Open Universities Australia in partnership with Curtin University, the unit is designed to produce culturally sensitive and socially aware teachers who will thrive in Australian Indigenous learning environments.
The unit takes you through the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and encourages you to consider how events such as the Stolen Generation have influenced education and learning for these populations.
You will also examine contemporary issues currently facing education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, and consider the role of education in reconciliation.
With this knowledge under your belt, you will be better equipped to develop proactive learning environments for Indigenous schools, and know how to apply the most effective strategies and interventions in the classroom.
