Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander presence: opening knowledge pathways

Author: Walter, M, 2011

This research report was commissioned by the panel for The Review of Higher Education Access and Outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. It discusses issues affecting the recognition and equivalence of Indigenous Knowledges in Australian higher education. It argues that Indigenous Knowledges are marginalised in a myriad of ways, and that distinct and tangible barriers to achieving recognition and equal value within higher education remain firmly in place. It concludes that addressing these barriers will require significant commitment of will, resources and strategic innovation from all players.
