The course will examine the historical and cultural contexts of Indigenous Australian education, contrasting Indigenous pedagogies with 'western' practice. It will explore the epistemologies and ontologies of Indigenous Australians, as well as the function of the Dreaming and the arts, past and contemporary Indigenous education policies, literacy, restricted knowledge, education as social currency, language rights, Aboriginal English, health and community well-being, and inclusive education. These themes will be further investigated in relation to classroom practice, the role of teachers and globalisation.
