  21. 21. yum productions eLearning Case Studies Examples of real life scenarios for problem solving and decision making to present the learner with a situation that they may one day encounter in their normal work practice
  22. 22. Role Plays Assume an identity, research their views and play the game in character to solve problems and explore issues to present the learner with a situation that they may one day encounter in their normal work practice a simulated environment allows learners to consider authentic situations in a safe environment. Learners are involved in engaging and experiential learning.
  23. 23. Decision Making Tree Present learners with situations with choices for dealing with the problem, with each choice leading to consequences and further choices The process of finding the solutions to the problems is more important than the solutions themselves. Learners can investigate the possible outcomes of choosing those options. They help the learner to form a balanced picture of the risks and outcomes associated with each possible course of action.
