If you care about learning outcomes (and you should), you definitely should know about scenario-based learning. With meaningful practice set in relevant contexts, scenarios are one of the most powerful approaches to make learning work. Our new eBook – ‘Scenario-Based Learning: The Ultimate Asset in Your L&D Toolkit’ digs deep into the realm of scenario-based learning. This comprehensive eBook delves into the “what,” “why,” and “how” of scenarios, offering useful insights into their design, execution, and assessment.
Here is a list of references from the eBook chapters that we think will help get your mind around scenario-based learning.
The What and Why of Scenario-Based Learning
In the opening chapters, we delve into the essence of scenarios and their pivotal role in effective learning. You’ll gain a clear understanding of how scenarios leverage the art of storytelling to enhance decision-making skills and immerse learners in realistic contexts. We’ll also guide you through the seamless integration of scenarios into your learning solutions, emphasizing their role in bridging the gap between knowledge and application.
This section delves into the core structure of scenarios, offering insights into their components, including story settings, decisions, and consequences. Whether you’re considering simulations or branching scenarios, we explore the various implementation options available. Furthermore, the eBook will guide you through the selection of media, whether text, audio, video, or tactile feedback, to ensure the most effective delivery of your situations.
