  2. 2. what is a scenario <ul><li>a training scenario describes educational activities in real life situations </li></ul><ul><li>- not in theory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Case studies </li></ul></ul><ul><li>a scenario is a story about people and their activities, adapted to fit one or more training goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of training resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adoption of a pedagogical approach </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. 4 steps of designing a training scenario Make a scenario description with training activities Describe a scenario using a template Scenario Learning Design Organize and Search for digital content Content Share scenario & content & adapt to new context Share
  4. 4. 4 steps of designing a training scenario <ul><li>SCENARIO IDEA </li></ul><ul><li>1 st Step: Add a scenario description, the level of study, background knowledge, activities, pedagogical strategy, tools and resources, assessment </li></ul><ul><li>2 nd Step: Describe and adjust the training scenario using the a template </li></ul><ul><li>3 rd Step: Organize, search and enrich the training scenario with content </li></ul><ul><li>4 th step: Share your scenario and adapt it for use in other contexts </li></ul>
  5. 5. objectives of a training scenario <ul><li>Integrate OA and AE subjects to vocational training curriculum </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure transferability of the training scenarios to other organizations by clarifying aims, methods and outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Consider pedagogical approaches from science for the pedagogical design of scenarios and activities </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot and validate training activities as case studies of actual educational programs </li></ul>
  6. 6. scenarios by university teachers The main aim of the scenario is to create a learning environment where the students can get the knowledge and skills through the experiences. This scenario is based on several visits to different animal farms that are supported with learning activities before and after the visits. Main objective of the scenario is to get familiar with, explore and provide reflections on the whole farm and its activities. After the visits students will have to write an analytical report that contains scientific information and provides possible solutions to the existing problems. Implemented educational methods should be experiential, participatory and learner-centered where farm visits are important and central components. The scenario could be used to build up a whole course. Organic Animal Production Learning goals The main learning goal is to understand holistic approach to organic animal production by visiting and exploring different farms, identifying main problems and searching for (scientific based) possible solutions to the problems identified.

  8. 8. training activities <ul><li>a training activity is an interaction between a learner (trainer/farmer) with the environment, resources, tools and instruments that is carried out in response to a task with an intended training outcome </li></ul><ul><li>it suggests the adoption of a pedagogical approach for designing the training activity </li></ul><ul><li>it stimulates the ’ curiosity and motivation </li></ul><ul><li>it enhances: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>social interactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>collaborative Knowledge Building </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the creation of communities of practice </li></ul></ul>

  13. 13. example of a simple scenario Field What to put here Example Title Provide a working title (maximum 15 words) During this activity the trainees will have the chance to get in contact with the farmer, observe the real situation in a farm and take some pictures, and note down any problem in the farm Short description supporting the title Describe the scenario with a few words so that the reader’s understanding of the title is deepened. Trainees will have an understanding on how the diseases affects the crop in the field and the appearance of a diseased plant Activities A simple scenario may consist of maximum one activity. In this case the title of the activity coincides in this case with the title of the scenario. Activity: Farm visit, exploration of the crop cultivation
