EDLE542 Indigenous Knowledges and Relationship Frameworks
Indigenous peoples’ world views have a strong holistic and relationship focus. In this unit, students explore the key components of understanding how to operate effectively in a leadership role within Indigenous community and organisational contexts. Indigenous ways of knowing and relating encompassing Indigenous epistemologies, spirituality, gender perspectives, leadership and communication protocols will be a focus. The development and maintenance of community partnerships, and the tensions in balancing a leader’s obligations and ethical practices will also be explored.
