A Range of Options for Scenarios and Storytelling

Experiencing eLearning

When someone mentions scenario-based learning, do you automatically think of complex branching scenarios? While that’s one way to implement scenarios (and a very effective one!), I don’t think it’s the only option. A range of options are available, from passive to active. Even if you can’t convince your organization to invest in full-blown branching, you can find less intensive alternatives to incorporate scenarios and storytelling.

It’s safe to say that no intelligent individual has ever spent a significant amount of time and money on an investment that did not promise to yield a good return. Whether it’s an investment in oneself, a business, another person, or a product, a quality return is always desired.

From Surviving to Thriving: Returning to what science says about how we think, work, and learn

Speaker: Clark Quinn, Ph.D., Author and Executive Director of Quinnovation

The pandemic and associated upheavals of 2020 has led to both the need and opportunity to rethink how we think, work, and learn. Being forced to distance, we took emergency steps to build mechanisms that supported remote-learning, with an emphasis on elearning and virtual training. The consensus suggests that our existing elearning and training weren’t as well-received as we hoped. Our efforts to rely on elearning more and translate training to virtual experiences weren’t well-designed. The underlying reason is that we’re not well aligned with how our brains really work! In this session, Dr. Quinn will also go over the implications for learning and working effectively both in general and in this new era. Come see what L&D can, and should, do to help transform organizations to work smarter (and wiser).

Mobile learning use is quickly on the rise and with good reason: we use mobile devices more than traditional laptops.

But why is mobile learning quickly becoming the biggest thing in digital learning experiences? Well, there are a number of reasons.

Consider 4 Cs in Scenario-Based Learning

When I create scenarios for learning, I keep these four elements in mind: characters, context, challenge, and consequences. Characters.

Even if the main character isn’t named and the scenario is in second person (What do you do next?), the role of that character should be familiar to your learners.
