For thousands of years, humans have used stories to teach each other important truths about the world. The same principles can be applied in the digital age using scenario-based learning. In this webinar, you’ll discover how you can use realistic scenarios to promote knowledge transfer and critical thinking in your next virtual employee training or customer-facing education program. You’ll also learn how to build a scenario that engages, entertains, and challenges learners to apply new information in relevant ways.
By the end of the webinar, participants will know:
- The potential benefits of scenario-based learning (SBL), including behavior change and transfer.
- Contexts in which SBL is most effective.
- How to create scenario-based learning in self-paced online courses and virtual instructor-led training.
