Including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in your reading lists is only a first step in developing a learning environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff see themselves reflected.
Other possible steps include:
Review other Australian university course reading lists.
Reconsider how modes of assessment, physical spaces, and extra-curricular activities could be designed to improve diversity. For example, you might ask students to develop a diverse reading list on a particular topic as an assignment.
Learn from what colleagues and strategic initiatives across the university are already doing.
Develop forums for discussing these kinds of issues directly with students.
Review progress at intervals to reflect on what is going well and where there are areas for continued development. Every time you write a module review, it is an opportunity to reflect on how the process of diversifying your reading list is working.
Encourage and celebrate significant dates and events across the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander calendar.
