Motivation and emotion - Indigenisation
- Acknowledgement of country
- Current unit convener aims to maximise openness, accessibility, and public editability of the unit’s educational materials as an alternative to the colonial/Western practice of claiming restrictive ownership over knowledge, access to education, and development of intellectual property.
- Students have the opportunity to develop open educational resources about motivation and emotion topics in Indigenous Australian contexts. These resources are available via Category:Motivation and emotion/Book/Indigenous/Australian.
- Students can negotiate their own topics for the major project which allows for particular interests in Indigenous Australian psychology to be pursued.
Some next steps:
- Map unit content and processes against:
- Indigenous Australian ways of learning
- Knowing, being, and doing
- Knowing (Content) Indigenous Knowledge / Histories and communication / Engagement and Communication
- Being (Perspectives/Practice; knowledge construction/worldview)
- Doing (Pedagogies- Indigenous ways of learning)
- UC graduates are able to demonstrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing, being and doing. UC graduates can:
- use local Indigenous histories and traditional ecological knowledge to develop and augment understanding of their discipline;
- communicate and engage with Indigenous Australians in ethical and culturally respectful ways;
- apply their knowledge to working with Indigenous Australians in socially just ways.
- Students could be further incentivised to contribute updates and improvements to existing motivation and emotion Indigenous Australian resources
