Webinar Description: Adult learning principles state that adults learn best when content is relevant. So why do most virtual classroom lessons rely on lectures and slides? One of the most effective ways to ensure learning sticks is by getting learners involved, and scenario-based learning design does just that.
We only have some much time to dedicate to formal learning – every moment needs to be impactful and relevant. Unfortunately, virtual classroom sessions tend to focus on getting as much content out there as possible, and leaving it up to the learners to figure out how to make it all work.
This session will explore how to design three types of scenario-based activities in the virtual classroom: problem-based learning, predictive learning, and play-based learning. Leave with detailed examples of each, and a template to walk you through seven steps for constructing scenarios in your virtual classroom design.
Join us to discover ideas for producing appropriate scenarios that resonate with your learners in the virtual classroom.
In this session, we will explore:
- The role of scenario-based learning in modern workplace learning
- How scenario-based learning supports adult learning theory
- Techniques for implementing three types of scenario-based learning in the virtual classroom
- 7 steps for constructing scenarios
