Indigenous Orientation Wominjeka is an online micro-credential now available for students. Completion of this module is not mandatory, however, I suggest we take a program-level approach and encourage as many SoE students as possible to access this significant information.
Students can start working on Indigenous Orientation Wominjeka anytime by logging on using their RMIT student account details at the RMIT Creds website.
Students will receive a digital badge on successful completion of the module. This badge demonstrates to future employers and collaborators that RMIT students are able to:
- Recognise the importance of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples being the traditional owners of this country.
- Identify and recognise the difference and appropriateness between a traditional welcome to country and an acknowledgement.
- Understand that RMIT campuses are located on Wurundjeri country of the Kulin Nation located in the state of Victoria.
- Recognise and explore the geographical, cultural and language differences of a variety of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
- Understand and recognise that Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have inhabited Australia for thousands of years and have retained a living culture that is present today.
- Appreciate the reconciliation efforts RMIT is undertaking with staff, students and community.
I am working to organise staff access to this credential so we can take a look at what is on offer.
