KKB192 Smash the Act - Indigenous Australian Politics

Unit synopsis

This unit investigates the distinctive feature of Indigenous knowledges and perspectives as the philosophical underpinning of Indigenous Australian politics. This unit is delivered through authentic experiences and individualized instruction, and learning through enjoyment, including learning by observation, doing and being in a shared learning environment. Indigenous pedagogy supports students’ cognitive search for learning and processes where they can internalize, reflect, deconstruct and reconstruct contemporary Indigenous Australian politics. Indigenous knowledges are both empirical (that is, based on experience) and normative (that is, based on social values).This unit embraces both the circumstances people find themselves in and their beliefs about those circumstances in a way that is unfamiliar to Eurocentric knowledge systems.
