CDSI Plenary: Widening participation, social inclusion, closing the gap
Keywords: social inclusion, Indigenous students, standpoint theory
AbstractAs Australian universities across the country adjust to the Federal Government’s forward vision of a socially inclusive society, widening participation strategy, low SES initiative and the closing the gap agenda, much can be learned from the decades of federal government priorities for Indigenous access, participation and outcome in higher education studies. In this Open Lecture, Prof. Nakata will sketch out the gains made in the transition of Indigenous students to higher education studies, the complex dimensions of supporting learning pathways of students without the necessary ATAR scores, and the need to rethink the formal learning situation in which these learners now participate in higher education studies.
