Koori Kids in School (A) Special Course - EDUP4072

This unit of study builds on EDUP2006 Aboriginal Education K-6, and focuses on the application of Aboriginal Studies in primary education. Students will be guided to develop teaching resources that authentically represent Aboriginal knowledge and expertise across the curriculum. The unit will emphasise approaches to meaningful consultation with Aboriginal communities and organisations. It aims to develop skills and knowledge that enable teachers to adopt a strengths based approach to Aboriginal education. A Professional Experience placement in a school that provides leadership in Aboriginal education is sought to align with pedagogical content knowledge developed in this unit.
