Indigenous Pedagogies

Incorporating Indigenous perspectives effectively into the curriculum is beneficial to all students as well as First Nations students. This presentation will support you to engage effectively with First Nations pedagogical approaches. The focus will be on the use of Yarning Circles; the presenter has developed a structured approach to allow for yarning circles as a pedagogical approach in a formal classroom and the 8 ways pedagogy. The 8 ways pedagogy evolved from a research project involving educators, university staff and local Aboriginal communities. It is ‘a culturally safe point of entry for teachers to begin engaging with Aboriginal knowledge and cross-cultural dialogue in the community’. This course will increase your understanding and knowledge and provide practical examples for the classroom. You will also be given some ideas of where to find additional professional reading and teaching resources to support your practice.

  • 1.4.2 Strategies for teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners
