Creating accessible cross-cultural awareness eLearning for
Like many organizations, ACCES Employment had to pivot from in-person workshops to virtual workshops and eLearning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ACCES was converting its Working with Others program to an online format and asked us to develop a cross-cultural awareness eLearning module to complement the virtual workshop.
“Working the 4Forward team was a great experience. They not only produced high quality deliverables, often times they were one step ahead of me in knowing what my needs were for the project. I highly recommend them for both design and development of learning resources.“

Using existing outline and content—and consulting with workshop facilitators—we created an interactive cross-cultural awareness eLearning module that prepares learners for the workshop. To boost participant engagement and learning, we used a flipped classroom approach where learners explore core concepts before discussing them in the workshop. ACCES Employment will use the eLearning module as a prerequisite for both in-person and virtual workshops.
After an engaging and interactive cross-cultural awareness eLearning module, participants come to the Working with Others workshop with a solid understanding of basic concepts and themes. This improves the flow and interactivity of the workshop, which ultimately makes it more effective.
ACCES Employment supports over 40,000 job-seekers offering both online and in-person services across seven locations across the Greater Toronto Area.
