Abstract his project was initiated to support the School of Education’s (SoE’s) impetus to embed Indigenous Knowledge (IK) into its Bachelor of Education (Primary) Degree. This move to increase the level of IK in Higher Education curricula is a response to a national push initially stimulated by the Council of Australian Government (COAG). The embedding of IK into the SoE units has been somewhat sporadic and intermittent. The incorporation of Indigenous Knowledge into the BEPD program (and others across the university) will thus be an on-going process that requires further work and resourcing. It is therefore important that impetus is not lost and that a range of measures are put in place to ensure continuity of progress.
The project was carried out through a series of interviews with School of Education staff; workshops seeking wider Indigenous input; a desk top review of School of Education course units; liaison with CDU Library.
