This unit examines and critically reflects on how pre-service teachers can create quality, inclusive teaching and learning environments for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to meet the expectations of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. The Unit does this from a foundation of understanding about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Knowings as well as from one that privileges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Knowings. This unit explores the importance of connectedness and relatedness in this context and the importance of engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents and communities to broaden their professional knowledge and practice.
