This subject explores the wide range of learning opportunities provided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations.

This subject introduces students to the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching and learning about Indigenous issues in the community. By getting out of the lecture theatre and visiting Melbourne schools, community organisations and services that provide educational experiences for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, students will have the opportunity to learn how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are changing the nature of education.
