What our postgraduate students have to say

Integrating Indigenous content into the classroom

With a longstanding passion for Indigenous education, Nicky wanted to help educators to better integrate Indigenous perspectives, histories, stories and cultures into their lessons. However, she was aware that this might be intimidating for some teachers who were less familiar with Indigenous content.

To overcome this barrier, Nicky sought to first solidify her own understanding of Indigenous education by studying a Graduate Certificate in Education (Indigenous Education) with QUT Online.
