Abstract

The paper describes an online cultural training workshop based around the complex
Aboriginal Kinship systems used in Australia.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the learning environment where the thematic focus
is on relationships and interaction, and how immersive learning and narrative teaching
styles work together within a social constructivist approach to deliver this outcome. Prior
to discussing how both a social constructivist immersive learning environment achieves
such outcomes, the paper will describe the online workshop design in the context of
decolonizing mainstream pedagogies.
