|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Indigenous Australian Studies (pre 2015)
Available only to undergraduate students eligible to take a level 3 subject.
This subject aims to introduce students to the field of research and in particular
research in an Indigenous context. Students will explore steps in the research process
and the relevance of protocols and ethical considerations at each step from an Indigenous
perspective. Nationally accredited protocol and ethics documents will provide the
framework for the subject. Students will be engaged in analysing the notion of consultation,
negotiation, communication, reciprocity and respect to ensure positive outcomes for
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, researchers and research institutions.
This understanding will prepare students for effective engagement with Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander people and for further study and careers in research. Students
should note that this is a third year subject and successful completion of some second
year subjects is advisable prior to enrolling in this subject.
