Show, Don’t Tell: Harnessing the Power of Storytelling in eLearning

July 8, 2021
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Online Training

For thousands of years, humans have used stories to teach each other important truths about the world. The same principles can be applied in the digital age using scenario-based learning. In this webinar, you’ll discover how you can use realistic scenarios to promote knowledge transfer and critical thinking in your next virtual employee training or customer-facing education program. You’ll also learn how to build a scenario that engages, entertains, and challenges learners to apply new information in relevant ways.

By the end of the webinar, participants will know:

  • The potential benefits of scenario-based learning (SBL), including behavior change and transfer.
  • Contexts in which SBL is most effective.
  • How to create scenario-based learning in self-paced online courses and virtual instructor-led training.
