The subject has been designed to allow students to explore Indigenous Australian Education and its benefits in primary and secondary educational settings. Students will critically reflect on their cultures and values, the relationship between Australian historical, socio-cultural, and socio-political contexts, and the cultures, histories and contemporary experiences of Indigenous Australia. They will advance their understanding of the dynamics of Indigenous Australian values, worldviews and knowledges. Students will encounter a diverse range of pedagogies and strategies that respect Indigenous Australian perspectives, orient students to reflect on Indigenous Australian cultures, histories and contexts to consider culturally responsive strategies for Indigenous Australian students. They will have the opportunity to apply their pedagogical understandings to investigate and reflect on current issues affecting Indigenous Australian people and anti-racism education policies, programs and services. They will evaluate their role in contributing to student outcomes, equity and quality within the primary or secondary education contexts.
