This short take presents the process of a learning circle, underpinned by Dadirri (Ungunmeer-Baumann 1988). This method was used for the purposes of critical reflective practice and data collection activity with non-Indigenous participants. Dadirri is a First Nations (Australian) term for “deep listening.” The learning circle research occurred with social and welfare workers in a regional health service. We found, through privileging Indigenous knowledges in the activity, that this method can enable a generation of learnings and critical reflection and assist workers to apply theory to practice. This method can also be used as a data collection tool to evaluate these aims.
