Based in the on-country context, this unit aims to give students opportunities to gain insights into the significance of historical and contemporary issues that have influenced and continue to impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The unit is delivered using Aboriginal pedagogies, including sessions with First Nations Elders, where students are challenged to further develop their understandings of First Nations’ ways of being, doing and knowing.
What you'll learn
- interpret Indigenous knowledges to apply culturally safe professional practices
- create a plan to incorporate knowledge learnt on-country in their discipline or professional practice
At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.
You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.
If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.
A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.
CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
