More and more Indigenous higher education centres are being involved within the institutionalised teacher training processes of universities within education degrees. Indigenous centres and their Indigenous scholars are working collaboratively with education committees for reform in issues of pedagogy and curricula in Indigenous Australian Education. This paper will articulate the development of teaching training methodology for reconciliation that has been developed by the Flinders University Yunggorendi First Nations Centre. The centre teaches an Education topic titled Teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students. This topic is a 4th year core topic within Bachelor of Education degrees in Flinders University. The aim of this presentation is to outline reconciliation methodology that is grounded in critical pedagogy which seeks to raise students consciousness, facilitate making contact and taking action in relation to Indigenous history, social contexts and education.
