Engaging your learners can be made easy and effective through the use of scenario based learning methodologies, also referred to as immersive learning simulations (ILS). In this powerpoint you will learn how these learning methodologies can be applied to training and online learning, the benefits they can have to the individual and the organisational as a whole, what types of learning are appropriate for this methodology and how you can convert your current content into an immersive learning simulation.

SimSkill - Scenario Based Learning

  1. 1. Scenario Based Learning Presented by: Kristi Abbott of SimSkill Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Switching on your learners for the best results
  2. 2. What will I cover? <ul><li>What is scenario based learning? </li></ul><ul><li>The core principles </li></ul><ul><li>The benefits – both to the organisation and the individual </li></ul><ul><li>What sort of training is it best suited for? </li></ul>Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott
  3. 3. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Hi, I’m James. I have been working at the hotel for 3 months now. Today I have been allocated to work in functions.
  4. 4. James’s Training: OPTION 1 Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott + In an event of an emergency you are required to blah blah blah…. Received when he first started at the hotel and mainly forgotten…
  5. 5. James is at work in functions when the fire alarm goes off. There is no scheduled drill today…. What does he do? Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott
  6. 6. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott
  7. 7. Problem: <ul><li>OPTION 1: </li></ul>Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott + = Easily forgotten <ul><li>Training material is not easy to recall as it: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Relies on short term memory </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Is not contextualised </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Has no emotional relevance </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. James’s Training: OPTION 2 <ul><li>Scenario based training </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Completed as needed (perhaps the night before) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At home or at the hotel </li></ul></ul>Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott +
  9. 9. Benefits <ul><li>Training material is easy to recall as scenarios: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>support long term remembering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>require decision making that provides memory retrieval practice </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>enables context triggered remembering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>enables language triggered remembering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And culturally relevant scenarios boost learning and performance </li></ul></ul>Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Reference: Will Thalheimer, PhD. Using Linguistically, Culturally, and Situationally Appropriate Scenarios to Support Real-World Remembering
  10. 10. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott What will James choose to do? Principle 1: A character faces a challenge
  11. 11. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott More detail to help him decide … Create a story in which they can become engaged…
  12. 12. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Principle 2: Show don’t tell… The consequences of his decisions start to become clear as the scenario rolls out…
  13. 13. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Principle 3: Make it a conversation The storyline engages James, drawing him in and encouraging him to learn
  14. 14. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott James realises the consequences of his decisions and why they were/were not optimal in this situation… Principle 4: It’s the design not the technology
  15. 15. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott And James is able to read the hotel’s official policy so he knows the correct thing to do in the event it occurs And he can then try again now that he has more information to help him make the correct choice The design engages and immerses them in the learning…the academic rigour is still integral but does not dominate
  16. 16. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Additional information available to help him decide Principle 5: Lead with the activities
  17. 17. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott As well as evacuation plans relevant to this particular scenario Information is shared after the activity – and when relevant to the learner, rather than before and then easily forgotten…
  18. 18. Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott Principle 5: Make them care
  19. 19. Principle 7: Application not regurgitation <ul><li>OPTION 1: </li></ul><ul><li>OPTION 2: </li></ul>Scenario Based Learning - Kristi Abbott + + + + = Easily forgotten = Retained knowledge
