Canberra Private SchoolsÂ introduces Uq Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit in St Lucia, for all your education and learning needs.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit was established at the University of Queensland in 1984. Its objective is to become a centre of excellence and expert opinion on teaching, research and consultation in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to maintain a committed system of personal and academic support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying at the University of Queensland.
The Unit is involved in many issues in the University, tertiary education, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and the broader community. The University has a strong commitment to reconciliation outlined in its Statement on Reconciliation and has adopted a statement of Education Principles on Indigenous Australian Matters (EPIAM) to provide a basis to develop policy and strategies to improve the understanding of students and staff of Indigenous issues and to recognise the importance and contribution of Indigenous Knowledge as an emerging discipline.
The Unit has a major responsibility for facilitating and encouraging the access, participation and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the University of Queensland. To this end, there are staff in the Unit who assist students with academic matters such as choosing subjects, accessing literature, computer and other resources. Staff also assist with personal matters that impact upon students’ studies. It is a primary objective of Unit staff to encourage students to develop successful, independent learning habits. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Academic and Research & Publication Groups are also responsible for developing the Unit’s academic profile through research, teaching, and publishing.
Welcome to Uq Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit one of the popular educators in your St Lucia area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each other's uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
