Developing a course in Australian prehistory and cultural resource management for tertiary Aboriginal students at Bachelor College

Introduction*

As a part of the Associate Diploma in Park Management which commenced in 1991 at Batchelor College, units in Australian Prehistory and Cultural Resource Management are being taught. The units are based on the Charles Sturt University course and are currently being adapted to make them more appropriate to the students’ cultural and educational backgrounds and learning styles. Although similar courses, catering for Aboriginal students, have been developed in southern Australia (for instance the Certificate of Archaeological Site Management for Aboriginal Site Officers conducted by the Victoria Archaeological Survey), these are not entirely appropriate for Batchelor students, given their different socio-cultural backgrounds.

*Note that an abstract was not included with this paper, and so the introductory paragraph has been included here instead of the abstract.
