Cultural Competence - Aboriginal Sydney MOOC trailer
Explore some of the key themes and capabilities of cultural competence by exploring Aboriginal experiences and narratives of Sydney. At the heart of this MOOC is the theme that Sovereignty was never ceded and Sydney always was and always will be Aboriginal Land. Despite this, the Aboriginal presence in the city is often invisible to non-Aboriginal eyes. This course aims to bring to light marginalised narratives of Aboriginal presence in this space.
Develop knowledge about race and racism and the skills necessary to understand different histories, identities and concepts of race and racial dialogue in a way that validates and values diverse cultural, historical and contemporary experiences. Participants will learn about the dynamics of cultural difference, and how to increase their knowledge and ability to address inequity, bias and privilege, and to create space for effective racial dialogue.
Confident Conversations about Race and Racism will be launched April 2024.
