Switching Black Power back on in Indigenous Learning
The National Aboriginal Education Committee (NAEC) emphasised that teachers and schools must: " ... develop an education theory and pedagogy that takes into account Aboriginal epistemology" (1987: 12). Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people consistently raise their concerns that schooling outcomes for their children are woefully inadequate. The pedagogical approach taken by most teachers was and continues to be inappropriate, and that the appropriateness to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students of current teaching practices needs to be thoroughly investigated. Students of this course will undertake study in the uses of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learning styles accompanied by an appropriate pedagogy; how to determine individual learning styles as accurately as possible; how to encourage the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learner to develop the skills and learning needed for Australia today; and develop strategies whereby Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are involved in the planning and implementation of policies on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education.
