Assessment #2 – Expression of Interest The Expression of Interest (EOI) assessment of 2000 wds is designed to give you a practical opportunity to address your understanding of concepts and content from the course, by responding to contemporary employment criteria. It will give you an opportunity to put into practice some of your learnings and own experience related to engaging and working effectively with Indigenous Australian people and communities. You are required to write an Expression of Interest (EOI) proposal in response to criteria which feature in current employment job and person specifications. Your EOI will relate to a project that will be implemented in an Indigenous context (organisation or community). You will then need to provide details of your knowledge developed throughout the course, as it would apply to the employment criteria. The aim of the assessment is to demonstrate you have understood the course and are making the links between theory and application to practice. This assessment will explore some of the central characteristics of Indigenous Australian cultures, the history of colonisation, and influences of dominant culture, the social, economic and psychological effects of colonisation on Indigenous Australians, racism, power and whiteness, contemporary Indigenous societies, and the role of human service professionals in contemporary contexts. There are three components to this assessment and all need to be satisfactorily completed. This includes a formal ‘job’ application letter, as well as your reflections and demonstrations of comprehension. This assessment is designed for you to consider the course content, and to reflect upon feelings and understanding of the materials and concepts. You will be required to draw upon workshop content and discussions, other course materials and broader research in your responses. We will be expecting you to demonstrate that you have analysed and understood the material presented and that your writing and responses indicate reflective thinking with regard to the course content and consideration of your learning. That is, we want you to demonstrate that you have engaged in the material in a scholarly and critical manner. Details of this assessment will be discussed at length at your workshops and the criteria will be available at Learnonline.
