| Learning Outcomes (LO)
Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
demonstrate an understanding of Aboriginal history in relation to the issues covered in this unit;
exhibit a broad and coherent body of knowledge of relations between groups of identifiably different peoples with different cultures and histories, and why the story of those relations took the course they did;
demonstrate an understanding of such basic human phenomena as conflict, conflict resolution, negotiation, strategies of power, strategies of resistance, thought and ideology, political strategies, social change over time, dispossession and reconciliation;
present a clear, coherent and evidence-based exposition of knowledge and ideas, showing that historical narrative and analysis can have more than one perspective, and that history can be contested ground; and
apply well developed cognitive and communication skills to show that much can be learnt about history, what it can and cannot do, what it can and cannot claim, through a study of Aboriginal history.
