An Indigenous Cultural Competency Pilot Activity
University: University of Wollongong
Project Leader: Associate Professor Garry Hoban, Faculty of Education
Project Summary: This project will use an innovative approach to storytelling, which has been called a 'Relational Knowledge Approach', to encourage pre-service primary and early childhood teachers to use Indigenous ways of knowing and learning to develop their own stories of `country'. These will be represented in the form of narrated `Slowmation' animations. The process of Slowmation (2 frames per second animation) has evolved over the last 4 years from a $240,000 ARC Discovery Grant that focused on teacher education students learning, designing and making their own animations to demonstrate scientific concepts.
