Indigenisation involves recognising and embedding Indigenous knowledges across the curriculum, developing a greater understanding of Indigenous peoples and cultures, and prepares graduates to work with a wide range of peoples, including Indigenous peoples. The Guide, authored by Dr Ryan Al-Natour, Professor Bronwyn Fredericks, Debbie Bargallie, Associate Professor Henrietta Marrie and Clare Bond will benefit staff and in the long term students, graduates and communities. CQUniversity has repeatedly outlined its commitment to inclusion and the Great Guide to Indigenisation of the Curriculum aligns itself with the University’s values. The Guide includes references to the developing literature base, relevant strategies and examples of practice and a framework for Indigenisation of the Curriculum. It is envisaged that staff will be able to utilise the Guide as a way forward for Indigenising the curriculum within their disciplines. The Great Guide is just one of the outcomes from the Indigenisation of the Curriculum project funded by the Department of Education’s, Higher Education, Participation and Partnership Program (HEPPP) managed first by CQUniversity’s Office of Indigenous Engagement and then by the School of Education and the Arts.
