Scenario-Based E-Learning Certificate

Immerse learners in real-world scenarios to accelerate expertise and increase learning transfer.

Many contemporary job roles require problem-solving and critical thinking skills to take on new and unanticipated workplace challenges. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills. In addition, some work skills either cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences) or 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. It is a proven method to build critical thinking skills and expertise in on-the-job tasks, especially those that may be unsafe or too infrequent to learn in the workplace.

The Scenario-Based E-Learning Certificate will take place May 17-18, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key features of a scenario-based e-learning design.
  • Summarize evidence and rationale for a scenario-based e-learning course in your organization.
  • Identify appropriate tasks and objectives for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
  • Complete a design plan for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
  • Draft a course structure diagram and storyboards for the project lesson.

Audience

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.
