Abstract


  • This paper derives from collaborative research undertaken by staff at theWoolyungah Indigenous

    Centre, into our own teaching practice. It articulates a particular strand of inquiry emanating

    from the research: the importance of Indigenous knowledges as this is taught at Woolyungah in

    the discipline of Indigenous Studies. The paper is a reflection of Woolyungah’s pedagogical aims,

    and its development as a Unit that seeks to embed other knowledges into the realm of critical inquiry

    within subjects taught at the Unit. It also reflects student responses to our pedagogy. The

    writers are Indigenous and non-Indigenous and have collaborated with all teaching staff involved

    to present this work as a starting point for discussions about the emerging discipline of Indigenous

    Studies, its rigour as an academic field of inquiry and our commitment as educators to the

    inclusion of Indigenous knowledges in our programme.
