INLI1001: Indigenous Literacies in Academic Contexts A

2024 unit information

This unit of study provides the foundations for students to develop the academic skills and capacity to experience success at university through an exploration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Western knowledge management conventions. It will introduce students to core skills required for successful communication in an academic context (reading, writing, listening and speaking), which include the ability to locate relevant information; summarise and paraphrase; and analyse and synthesise ideas. The ownership, representation and communication of knowledge in community, academic and professional contexts will be explored. Students will respond to a range of views presented by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lecturers and speakers, and visit culturally relevant, contemporary sites. The unit also emphasises the importance of reflection as a means of enhancing students' learning experiences.
