Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training for Central Queensland University (CQU)
Concept: Create greater awareness amongst CQU students and employees about indigenous history, culture, languages and protocols.
The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee is interested in projects that promote student and staff understanding of indigenous perspectives and cultural awareness into SET unit curriculums.
The Committee discussed the idea of developing a cultural awareness training program for CQ University students and staff to better understand local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island history, culture, languages and protocols. One of the Committee members suggests such a project would be very complex. The Committee chair wants further information before raising the idea with the relevant funding body. Another Committee member suggests it would be good to have the training program released to coincide with the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) week between 8th – 15th July 2018.
The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee has requested cultural awareness training program include indigenous history, culture, languages and protocols. The Committee also requested the training program include both face to face and online training components. In addition, the training program should be tailored for the needs of CQ University students and employees.
The School of Engineering and Technology (SET) Indigenisation Committee has indicated members of local Aboriginal and Islander communities be one of the key stakeholders in this project. The Committee has requested that during the project any contact with these communities be undertaken in a respective and culturally appropriate manner.
