This unit of study supports students to become effective teachers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students by expanding their understanding of the diversity of Indigenous cultures, communities and perspectives. The unit develops an understanding of Australia's shared history, and highlights the importance of embedding Indigenous content and perspectives in the curriculum for all students. Key stakeholders in Indigenous education are identified and the importance of consultation and ongoing engagement with communities is emphasised. Current NSW Aboriginal education policies and strategies are examined in the broader context of global Indigenous educational experience and rights based initiatives. Students will also develop a knowledge and understanding of culturally inclusive teaching and learning strategies for all students.
