Research with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Elective Code EM.01

Course Overview

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are not one homogenous group of peoples, but are heterogenous with great diversity in family, language, land, and law.

Your research must recognise, acknowledge and respect this and be designed, implemented and disseminated in a way that is culturally appropriate.

Aligned to Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) competencies, this elective will explore ways to help you make decisions to ensure the research journey benefits and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, their rights, culture, heritage, land and resources. 

This course should be completed in conjunction with any cultural training at your organisation. If your organisation does not have cultural awareness training, there are online courses that are available.
