DescriptionFrom reflection (attached)
Charles Sturt University has a strong commitment to Indigenous education, principles of cultural competence, social justice and reconciliation. As such, University’s Indigenous Australian Content in Courses and Subjects policy requires all undergraduate and postgraduate courses to incorporate Indigenous Australian content into the curriculum to facilitate graduates: 1) understanding of their cultural and historical positioning and the implications for knowledge and practice; 2) knowledge, skills and attributes of Indigenous cultural competence; and 3) professional skills in their discipline based on high-quality, culturally responsive professional education.
During 2022, I collaborated with the Course Director and wider course team to develop an Indigenous Australian content course endorsement submission for the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology. This work required us to explore a range of Indigenous content documents, such as the Indigenous Education Strategy, Indigenous content course and subject design principles, and Indigenous Cultural Competence Pedagogical Framework. These documents provided guidelines and direction for how Indigenous content could be embedded and scaffolded throughout the course. We were also required to consider Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) course accreditation requirements and ensure that any changes to the course to include indigenous Australian content were achieved while maintaining course accreditation standards and requirements.
