Indonesian has strong strategic importance for Australia and priority status in Australian education systems, yet the study of Indonesian language is in crisis. This H Course is intended to build the number of senior secondary students studying Indonesian language and culture, and to improve the quality and depth of students’ learning by providing a tertiary-level pathway between school-based education and tertiary studies. This course takes a creative and innovative approach to language teaching, content, and curriculum, drawing on the approach of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL - see course bibliography) to engage students creatively through performance-based activities, guided research into student-directed projects, and high-order content delivered in a university setting. The course will consist of two units: Youth Media and Performance, and Political Performance.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Explain and analyse the significance of performance within activist, youth, religious and popular culture movements.
2. Use performance and Indonesian language to communicate cultural meanings in a creative, confident and coherent manner, and explain how they have used performance and language to communicate.
3. Exchange and explore information and ideas from spoken, written and visual texts, for example: film, internet resources, music videos, radio, news outlet reports.
4. Respond creatively and/or critically to a variety of text types.
5. Demonstrate, through the use of the Language, an understanding of the culture of the target language community.
6. Communicate in increasingly complex linguistic and cultural contexts showing strong control over linguistic elements and an awareness of audience and purpose.
7. Develop independent, problem solving and collaborative learning skills.
