Instead of boring “click next” compliance training, engage learners and give them a reason to seek out and understand the policies.
What if you could create compliance training that learners actually cared about? Use a worst case scenario to show the “why” behind the rules.
Watch the recording of my webinar with Swapna Reddy on scenario-based learning.
When you convert training from classroom to online or blended learning, use a backward design process to focus on the objectives and important skills.
Converting training to online requires more than just posting PowerPoints online to be effective. Start with an analysis to plan an effective conversion.
This is an example of the thought process for creating layouts for a branching scenario.
This is a basic outline of how to create a training program for people without a formal instructional design background.
Ruth Clark identifies 8 learning domains where scenario-based learning can be used effectively. These common topics for workplace training all involve more strategic decision-making rather than simply following a checklist of tasks.
Listen to my interview about scenario-based learning experiences on The Lounge podcast with Jacqueline Hutchinson.
When you think of branching scenarios, do you think of self-paced elearning, maybe of an entire course with nothing but a complex branching scenario? While a lengthy branching scenario can be effective on its own, that isn’t the only way to use this approach. Combining branching scenarios with other training approaches lets you use branching scenarios for the activities where they matter most, while using other methods where they are effective.
