Kinship Online: Engaging "Cultural Praxis" in a Teaching and Learning Framework for Cultural Competence
Riley, Lynette; Howard-Wagner, Deirdre; Mooney, Janet
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v44 n1 p70-84 Aug 2015
The article describes the teaching and learning framework that underpins a Kinship Online Module aimed at delivering online cross-cultural training at the university level. It is based on an existing workshop designed and presented to non-Aboriginal staff and students by Lynette Riley, a Wiradjuri and Gamilaroi woman from Dubbo and Moree. In doing so, this article reflects on the pedagogical framework and adopted learning environment, and describes how the project adopts a "cultural praxis" approach that combines a social constructivist, problem-based immersive learning approach with five complementary pedagogical approaches. These principles underpin the designing of a program that embeds diverse Aboriginal knowledge into this online teaching resource.
