    ABORIGINAL PEDAGOGY

    Koori Curriculum | Embedding Aboriginal perspectives in Early Childhood Curriculums

    Embedding Aboriginal perspectives in early childhood curriculums is a multifaceted approach and is a combination of both pedagogy and practice. Our Aboriginal pedagogy workshop supports educators to teach through culture and not just about it. For non-Indigenous educators this will also include fostering an understanding of how ones world view and ways of knowing and doing can greatly differ from the Aboriginal children that they are potentially teaching. By culturally contextualising early childhood curriculums and topics of enquiry educators are supporting Aboriginal children to thrive in the early years and on into formal schooling.

    This session will:

    • Offer insight into various Aboriginal pedagogies
    • Explain the protocols using Aboriginal pedagogies
    • Show case studies and stories of practice
    • Practical demonstration of inclusive programming and planning

    Duration: 2 hours.

    Participant numbers upon enquiry.

    AUSTRALIA HAS A BLAK HISTORY

    Koori Curriculum | Aboriginal history | invasion | Aboriginal practices

    Developing educator’s cultural confidence and knowledge is essential in order to ensure the meaningful and respectful inclusion of Aboriginal culture in early learning programs. For many Australians, Aboriginal culture and history was a token nod in the curriculum during their formal schooling and consequently many educators today still do not know the truth about our nations blak history.

    Historical understanding and acceptance is key in being able to comprehend current affairs and issues that effect Aboriginal people in the present. This workshop will provide participants with information regarding the traditional lifestyles of Aboriginal people and how this was changed forever by invasion, legislation and injustices that violated the human rights of Aboriginal people and their communities.

    Educators will be guided to critically reflect on their own biases and how these have been shaped by negative stereotypes of Indigenous people in the media. This workshop is about unlearning, relearning and moving forward.

    Duration: 2 hours.

    EMBEDDING ABORIGINAL PERSPECTIVES INTO EARLY CHILDHOOD CURRICULUMS

    Koori Curriculum | Embedding Aboriginal perspectives in Early Childhood Curriculums

    “We know we should but we don’t know how!” is a common statement made by many well-meaning educators in reference to Aboriginal programs. An astounding number of educators are worried about being offensive, tokenistic and stereotypical and often do nothing in fear of getting it wrong.

     

    This workshop is all about growing educator’s cultural confidence and capacity. Jessica will equip educators with practical ideas on how they can embed Aboriginal perspectives in their curriculum all year long and not just during NAIDOC week.

    Duration: 2 hours.
