======================================================================

SYMPOSIUM AIMS:

This Symposium will examine approaches to engaging Indigenous knowledges, pedagogies and curriculum. It will provide an opportunity to build communities of best practice across a range of disciplines including: science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); humanities; social sciences; education; health; business and Indigenous studies. The Symposium will bring together academics, teachers, community members and students.

Topics for discussion will include, but are not limited to:

o  	What is 'best practice' when engaging Indigenous perspectives, knowledges and pedagogies in the curriculum?
o  	What contributions can non-Indigenous staff make to Indigenous content in education?
o	What are the issues for different disciplines, such as STEM, health, business and humanities?
o	How do students learn best about Indigenous Australians, communities and organisations?
o  	How do we prepare our students to be interculturally competent professionals?
o	How is institutional readiness created for including Indigenous education in the curriculum?

UniSA has a long tradition of developing curricula around discipline and professional practice in relation to working with Indigenous Australians. Since 2005, UniSA requires all undergraduate students to have Indigenous content in their program of study. Academic staff work in partnership with colleagues in the David Unaipon School of Indigenous Education and Research (DUCIER) to deliver this policy. In 2014, UniSA launched its Reconciliation Action Plan to further strengthen its Indigenous Content Program and move towards its aspiration to become the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student 'university of choice'.

This Symposium is hosted by the University of South Australia with funding support from the Portfolio of Student Engagement and Equity, UniSA College, the UniSA Business School and the Divisions of Education, Arts and Social Sciences; Health Sciences; and Information Technology, Engineering and the Environment.

INVITATION:

We invite posters and papers that address these and related symposium themes.
