EEB206 Pedagogies and Practice for Social Justice (8)

In this subject students will learn how to respond ethically, respectfully and effectively to twenty-first century issues in Indigenous education. They will encounter Indigenous peoples life stories to further their own intercultural competence and enrich curriculum content in a learning setting. They will expand their repertoires of practice by applying pedagogies derived from Indigenous sources to benefit all learners and relate these to mandated curriculum outcomes. Students will collaboratively map issues and teaching principles for teaching young children and plan a sequence of learning experiences for older children using Indigenous pedagogies to achieve mandated learning outcomes.
