This book examines a collaborative partnership model between academia and Indigenous peoples, the goal of which is to integrate Indigenous perspectives into the curriculum. It demonstrates how the authentic and creative approaches employed have led to an evolution of curriculum and pedagogy that facilitates cultural competence among Australian graduate and undergraduate students. Teaching Aboriginal Cultural Competence pursues an interdisciplinary approach based on highly practical examples, exemplars and methods that are currently being used to teach in this area. It focuses on facilitating student acquisition of knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills, following Charles Sturt University's Cultural Competence Pedagogical Framework. Further, it provides insights into the use of reflective practice in this context, and practical ideas on embedding content and sharing practices, highlighting examples of potential "ways forward," both nationally and globally. This book illustrates the active working relationships with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics and Indigenous Elders in an Australian context providing essential information on Indigenous Australia Cultural Competence and includes multiple examples of real-world teaching scenarios and experiences. Dr. Barbara Hill, BA ANU, MA Deakin, PhD UNSW is Academic Lead, First Nations Curriculum in the Division of Learning and Teaching at Charles Sturt University (CSU). She also leads the Gulaay, First Nations Curriculum and Resources Team and is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK).
