The Indigenising Curriculum Working Party (ICWP) was established by the Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC) to address the initiative of embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into the UQ Curriculum as an objective of the UQ Reconciliation Action Plan.

There is University-wide representation from Indigenous scholars, Directors of Teaching and Learning (T&L), Faculties and Schools and Indigenous students. The ICWP will advise and make recommendations to the TLC on:

  • the adoption, configuration, and integration of best practices for embedding Indigenous perspectives in UQ curriculum.
  • emerging educational developments and practices in relation to the Indigenisation of curriculum, including related technological developments and digital platforms.
  • support, training, communication and professional learning requirements related to embedding Indigenous perspectives in curriculum, including the development of training to teach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander content and the establishment of a network/community of practice.

ITaLI works closely with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Unit to progress the embedding of Indigenous Knowledges into the UQ Curriculum.
