Indigenous Educational Disparities and Pedagogical Practice to Gain Equitable Educational Outcomes
Share |


 IRN Start Date: May 1, 2015

This network is designed to establish a collaborative body of Indigenous educational researchers to highlight work of what pedagogical practices are best needed to engage Indigenous school age students into their education. This body will start through highlighting research that has informed educators about key considerations needed when working with Indigenous students. Further analysis across Indigenous populations will examine if there are any specific requirements identified when working with specific Indigenous populations.

As the target audience is school age Indigenous students, work will be considered if there is a need for greater systemic changes to educational institutions to greater support Indigenous students. As a majority of school age Indigenous students attend regular educational institutions not Indigenous managed institutions globally. From the examination of the collected information the collaborative body will highlight if further research is needed towards any areas within the literature.

This body is designed to engage Indigenous educational researchers in the examination and analysis of research about best practices when working with Indigenous school age students. This will include the examination, analysis and interpretation of research materials completed by non-Indigenous educational researchers. This is done not to challenge the findings by these educational research professionals but to allow an Indigenous centred position to be at the forefront of the interpretation of the work. This will allow Indigenous cultural knowledges and values that are at the centre of the Indigenous researcher to become part of the academic canon.
