Enjoyed this subject. Really interesting and all the teaching staff were very passionate.

Easiest subject - done it externally. Lecturer Corrine is very straight forward and wants you to pass, actually talks about relevant things. No exam externally, just ensure you stay on top of it!

This is my second semester at University. ABST 100 is my favourite subject so far. I couldn't make the first lecture but the second lecture on reading and writing was incredible. I expected it to be really dull and boring, but the lecturer Corrine just brings the classroom alive. I never thought I would actually enjoy lectures, particularly in this subject. It is a revelation!

This unit has been nothing short of spectacular. It's been an absolute joy participating in a unit that is taught and tutored by people that are so passionate about what they are teaching, and make it so you can't wait for the next topic to begin! There's a few convenors and tutors out there that could take a few pages from your book that's for sure! I'm disappointed that it's come to an end so fast and that I can't just keep doing Indigenous based units, you guys have really cemented the fact that this was the right major choice for me and for that I thank you again as the other units I did this session have really made me question if I've chosen the right degree!

This unit has truly enlightened me. I have learnt so much about myself, the world and Aboriginal people. The first lecture blew my mind! Being colonised was an eye opening experience, it really highlighted to me how power can be used and abused. Corrinne is the best teacher I have ever had, and the guest lectures she brings in are awesome. I hope I can do more ABST units.

This has been my most favourite subject this semester. I took the unit as my people unit. I love the challenge, it is interesting and really confronting - but in a good way! The lecturer Corrinne, is the best teacher Ihave had in my life!

I do not recommend this as an elective AT ALL. I withdrew from this unit immediately after going to the first lecture given by Corrinne Franklin. I have never come across a more unprofessional lecturer in my five years at uni. Late students arriving just after 5 minutes past the hour were forbidden to sit down. Instead, she made them stand at the front for more than an hour, doing nothing. What was that supposed to be? What infuriated me the most was that she made the students (150 or more) stand up at the front and back of the lecture theatre in the second half of the lecture and expected us to ask her questions and her opinions. All the while she was the ONLY person sitting down in the lecture theatre. There was no point to this exercise at all. Why did she make all the students stand up while she just sat down? Absolutely disgraceful. And she said this was compulsory too. Well, I learnt absolutely nothing from her in the 85 minutes I was there. This stupid "ask me (the lecturer) questions" exercise was still going after 25 minutes, after which I collected my things. I thought this was absolutely pointless. She is the most unprofessional academic staff I have ever come across and I advise everyone to not do this subject.

I did ABST100 as my people unit in my first year, and to date it's still one of my favourite subjects. Really opened up my mind and the guest lecturers made for some great experiences.
