This subject explores the relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous, histories perspectives and cultures. It encourages you to develop an ethical position grounded in critical reflection which will enable you to identify and challenge racial and social injustices in education and more broadly through practice and pedagogy.
The subject has four foci which are integrated: history, culture, curriculum, and pedagogy. It considers these foci as they relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, non-Indigenous peoples, educators, administrators, and policy makers. In doing so, it provides you with both a theoretical and practical grounding from which to develop your skills as a transformative educator capable of fostering restorative justice and reconciliation both within and through education.
