Description Learning through Indigenous Australian Community Service will provide students with an exciting opportunity to apply their disciplinary knowledge and skills in an Indigenous Australian cultural context. Students will negotiate and conduct an interview with an Indigenous or Non-Indigenous Service Provider working in an Indigenous context. Students will gain cross cultural awareness and insights as well as knowledge about Indigenous community affairs including cultural protocols, decision-making and leadership. This experience will provide students with a level of cultural understanding and competency that can lead to improved communication skills and effective partnering with Indigenous people, organisations and communities.
