Teaching the teachers

Re-educating Australian teachers in indigenous education

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Recent Australian education reform has resulted in qualified teachers recognising that they are inadequately prepared to teach content within the area of Indigenous education. The knowledge and theoretical understanding imparted in teacher education programs over the past decades did not prepare educators to embed Indigenous content across all years and areas of the curriculum. Today, pre-teachers in Australian universities are assessed on their ability to deliver content that is relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and peoples in our contemporary world, to varying degrees.
