Move Beyond Boring: Creating Scenario-Based Learning that Engages Participants – by Christy Tucker
February 26, 20200 Comments
Workplace training can be boring and dry, leaving participants disengaged. If participants can not immediately understand the link between their tasks and their instruction, they will not be prompted to implement new skills to their tasks or to complete the instruction. ELearning can at times be overly focused on simply remembering content and not give opportunities to practice their new abilities to people. It also can highlight behavioral participation (clicking), at the cost of effective engagement (values and emotions) or cognitive participation (attempt and deep learning strategies).
In this session you will discover how scenarios can make your eLearning relevant and interesting to your audience. Scenario-based learning can affect emotions to make participants’ attention about the content and keep them engaged. You can use scenarios and draw them into the story right. You can use these to practice applicable abilities that are decision-making in situations very similar to actual life. You’ll explore branching scenarios — a common situation strategy — along with a range of options for incorporating scenarios and storytelling in eLearning, a number of which can be used with an assortment of development resources.
In this session, you will learn:
