Course Info

Taking on new and often unanticipated workplace challenges requires problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills for those in contemporary job roles. In addition, some work skills cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences), while others can only be learned over a long period of time.

Taking on new and often unanticipated workplace challenges requires problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills for those in contemporary job roles. In addition, some work skills cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences), while others can only be learned over a long period of time.

Scenario-based e-learning (SBeL)—also known as problem-based learning or whole task learning—is a highly interactive course design that puts the learner in the role of a problem solver responding to realistic workplace problems or situations. This proven method of scenario planning builds critical thinking skills and expertise in on-the-job tasks, especially those that may be unsafe or too infrequent to learn in the workplace.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

  • Identify when SBeL is most effective and apply the process for designing and creating successful scenario-based e-learning that accelerates job competency.
  • View examples of SBeL from a variety of industries.
  • Identify the key questions about course structure and development to address in SBeL designs.

What About Sound?

Back when I was working on video games, we used sound effects not only to make game play more engaging, but also to make it more difficult—even if sometimes those effects helped cue the player to...

Who Should Attend

This program is suitable for anyone who has designed or developed traditional e-learning and is looking for alternative approaches to build critical thinking skills or accelerate workplace expertise. It is also useful for individuals who have or are starting a scenario-based e-learning program, or who are exploring the potential of the approach. In-depth knowledge of programming or e-learning design is not necessary.

ATD education programs are designed primarily for learning professionals—trainers, instructional designers, and organization development practitioners—but also greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is responsible for developing others, from managers to human resources specialists.
