The need

Many people deliver an Acknowledgment of Country without truly understanding why. Acknowledge This! is a fun and interactive eLearning module about how to deliver a genuine and authentic Acknowledgement of Country. We worked collaboratively with Rhys and Emma, the founders of Acknowledge This!, to transform their face-to-face workshop into an engaging eLearning module.


The learning solution

The eLearning module provides the foundations to create a genuine and authentic Acknowledgement of Country, including how to articulate it and how to make it personal to you. It also covers the challenges of delivering an Acknowledgement, common questions and fears, and offers a simple structure to start building your own authentic Acknowledgement.

Rhys and Emma use their signature conversational style and storytelling in the featured videos to provide context and share their personal insights. Noongar is the traditional language spoken throughout the south-west of Western Australia and is featured throughout the resources, encouraging learners to find out what their local language is and incorporate it. To help participants get the most out of their learning, Acknowledge This! also includes a workbook, quick reference guide and Acknowledgement of Country template.

Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve is not just a psychological concept; it’s a vital tool in the arsenal of any instructional designer. By implementing strategies like spaced repetition, active recall, and real-life application, we’re not just fighting forgetfulness; we’re crafting learning experiences that resonate and endure. Our goal is to turn those fleeting moments of learning into lasting pillars of knowledge and skill. With Ebbinghaus’ insights, we can create educational journeys that are not just memorable but also profoundly effective. Let’s embrace these strategies and transform how we approach learning design.
