The power of stories to transform, inform and remove the polite veil of ignorance is what this paper will ultimately be about. This will be done through the telling of a series of stories and moments at Batchelor Institute, the teaching of the Common Units. The stories about stories will show Indigenous pedagogies in practice, both-ways enacted, and the power of stories to undermine the subtle positioning of Aboriginal students by non-Aboriginal lecturers.
This paper will be an exploration around the teaching and learning process that was the Common Units at Batchelor Institute 1999 – 2011. The units themselves were transformative and experiential, you came out changed after having experienced them. This is our aim with this paper also, we invite you on a journey to come and explore from our perspectives the tensions and celebrations that were the Common Units.
