In this course, pre-service teachers will engage with and in local teaching and learning communities to develop understanding and knowledge of best practice models in teaching and learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures and students. With the inherent focus on Australia, pre-service teachers will develop broad knowledge, understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their histories, cultures and languages to meet Australian Curriculum and Australian Professional Standards for Teachers¿ expectations and requirements. Stemming from understandings of relationships between European descendant Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, pre-service teachers will explore and engage cultural protocols, and culturally inclusive teaching pedagogy, to develop positive and inclusive learning programs and outcomes for all students.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
