It is well known that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians continue to be under-represented in the Australian higher education sector. Deakin University seeks to redress this imbalance by offering an innovative and practical approach to the provision of educational services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Through its Institute of Koorie Education, a body enshrined in a Regulation of the University, Deakin University has established itself as an exemplary provider of higher education and educational services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students throughout Australia.
All courses are delivered through the Community-Based Learning model which provides a holistic approach to education. Community-Based Learning involves a combination of both on- and off-campus teaching, designed to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to study without being removed from their communities for substantial periods of time. This model allows students to remain connected to their communities and actively continue to contribute to community life.
While on-campus, for one- to two-week intensive study blocks held three times per semester, students are provided with a teaching and learning environment that is inclusive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ideologies and Knowledge Systems. Students are encouraged to demystify the dominant ideologies and theoretical perspectives, and interpret the western knowledge systems presented within their discipline area of study.
After completing a period of intensive on-campus study at the Institute, students return to their own communities. There they are supported by a number of responsive strategies including family, community visits by lecturing staff and some Information Communication Technology (ICT) resources.
