Tuesday, October 31, 3:00 PM EDT: Level Up Your Elearning: Character Creation for Scenario-Based Learning. Part of TLDC’s free event From Instructional Design to Dungeons & Dragons: The Chronicles of Educaria.
In Dungeons & Dragons, character creation is the foundation of epic storytelling. In learning and development, the creation of characters plays a pivotal role in scenario-based learning. For this session, you will complete activities focused on shaping character backstories, defining their objectives, and constructing challenges that spark curiosity and foster learning. Learn tips for creating characters who are both relevant to your training context and interesting enough to spark attention. A good character for scenario-based learning is one your learners can identify with and that draws them into the story. Just like in RPGs, creating characters for workplace training scenarios requires a bit of imagination. Plan to actively participate in this session and practice creating both protagonists or player characters (PCs) and additional non-player characters (NPCs).
Ever wished you could peek over my shoulder while I create a branching scenario? This is your chance! I’m going to do a free, 1-hour livestream where I build a branching scenario and talk through my thought process. We’ll pick a topic live from a list of options, and I’ll show you how I plan and map out a branching scenario. I’ll demonstrate how I create challenges and choices. You’ll see my process for managing the branching structure without letting it get out of control. You can ask me questions, and I’ll answer as many as I can during the hour call.
This is an experiment. I’ve never done something like this before, and there might be some hiccups. But, I want to try something new and see if it’s helpful for people to shadow my work.
