eLearn Australia works with a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, Culturally and Liguistically Diverse (CALD) communities and educational institutions to provide web-based and mobile cultural awareness training.
Our approach to cultural awareness training is one of collaboration and respect. Contact us today for more information or browse the examples below.
eLearn Australia developed the 'Working Well' elearning modules in partnership with Northern Territory General Practice Education, AMSANT and the Danila Dilba Health Service. These online modules provide advice, stories and guidance to GP Registrars (i.e. doctors in training) who are planning to work in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS). The Working Well modules were acknowledged by the World Health Organisation in 2014.
These bespoke cultural awareness courses incorporate audio, video, reflection exercises and interactive quiz components. Educational content was developed from a series of community consultation interviews that identified common misconceptions and misunderstandings between non-Indigenous doctors and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners and Aboriginal patients.
All elearning content developed by eLearn Australia is HTML5 compliant and can be integrated into any learning management system, either through SCORM, the Tin Can API (xAPI) or direct repository links.

Delivering your cultural awareness training online can benefit you and your learners in a number of ways. Not only does elearning provide a greater audience reach for your training; it also provides a safe environment to explore potentially sensitive issues and anonymity to ask the 'tricky' questions. The self-paced aspect of online training also allows people from non-English speaking backgrounds to work through the material at their own pace.
eLearn Australia developed a number of online units of competency around cultural diversity and cultural sensitivity in nursing practice (example screens are shown in the images below). These units were embedded into a virtual hospital and delivered in combination with online tutorials, lectures and face-to-face practical sessions.
Any elearning environment that eLearn Australia develops will integrate completely with a number of learning management systems including Blackboard and Moodle.

eLearn Australia has developed a number of mobile and web-based games for the No Smokes project. No Smokes uses knowledge sharing, capacity development and empowerment strategies to promote anti-smoking and pro-health choices amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Using games to promote cultural awareness or incorporating game-based elements into your cultural awareness training is a great way to increase the learner's engagement and uptake of the resource.
