Koori Kids in School (A) Special Course (EDUP4072)


This unit of study aims to develop skills and knowledge that will enable students to address the many issues that face Indigenous students in the school environment. The unit focuses on the application of Aboriginal Studies in primary education and builds on the knowledge and skills gained in EDUP2006 Aboriginal Education K-6. It is structured so that students, through lectures and workshops throughout Semester 1, are prepared to undertake their Practicum at a primary school with a significant cohort of Indigenous students and an Aboriginal Education Officer (AEO). Students will be guided in the application of more extensive consultative mechanisms with Aboriginal communities, organisations and individuals.
