NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. For NAIDOC week this year, we are inviting you to share the IGA related curriculum you have been working on with the university community.
And why our IGA champions decided to take up their roles…
You may have heard about the Bangarra Dance Theatre and Bennelong Point, but what about Lake Northam, Bidura, Royleston and Murawina? A new subject run by the Centre for the Advancement of Indigenous Knowledges (CAIK) is giving all undergraduate students the opportunity to better engage with and understand Indigenous culture.
Embedding an Indigenous Graduate Attribute in the design of every UTS course is a significant undertaking in itself, as well as part of the wide-scale learning.futures transformation. Professor Susan Page from the Centre for the Advancement of Indigenous Knowledges (CAIK) reflects on the unique way UTS is approaching this re-alignment of the curriculum – and how we’ll make it happen.
