About This Certificate Program
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 You Should Attend
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.
