Committed to Indigenisation of curricula and development of graduate attributes in Indigenous cultural capability, the School of Biomedical Science and Pharmacy (SBS&P), collaborating with Thurru Health Unit, Wollotuka and Office of Indigenous Strategy and Leadership at the University of Newcastle (UoN) will facilitate a collaborative initiative that allows SBS&P staff to benefit from Te Huataki Waiora School of Health at University of Waikato (UoW) staff who have worked to reflect cultural ways of understanding into teaching Science and Health. UoW staff have been exploring ways they as non-indigenous academics embed practices that support Māori and Pacific learners to experience educational success, alongside maintaining and enhancing learners mana. By attending SBS&P program development workshops UoW staff will contribute experience to Indigenisation of curricula and a science and health relevant model to inspire Indigenisation of SBS&P programs. Further collaboration will facilitate sharing of UoN experience relating to embedding video presentations (featuring embodiment, segmentation, and signaling) designed to facilitate engagement in blended-learning based multi-program, anatomy, and physiology courses. UoN and UoW staff, supported by Learning Design and Teaching Innovation (LDTI) and Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning (CeTTL) representatives, will collaborate, create, and deliver proof of concept evaluations to evaluate whether such recordings improve engagement, learning access, and academic success.
