This unit explores the processes of research is conducted in Indigenous contexts and with Indigenous people. Students will develop a stronger awareness and understanding of the diverse range of Indigenous contexts for research and the ways in which their own epistemological, socio-cultural and socio-economic assumptions can influence research processes and outcomes. Principles for appropriate, respectful, inclusive and effective research are negotiated in preparation for the application of these principles in a major research project. A critical analysis of a range of Indigenous contexts challenges and extends students' knowledge and perspectives on Indigenous research and prepares them to uphold ethical research practices.
