Scenario-Based E-learning Certificate

Immerse learners in real-world scenarios to accelerate expertise and increase learning transfer.

Scenario-based e-learning (SBeL)—also known as problem-based learning or whole-task learning—is a highly interactive course design that puts the learner in the role of a problem solver responding to realistic workplace problems or situations. The lessons are built around a series of progressively complex workplace assignments or situations. Scenario-based e-learning is a proven method to build critical thinking skills and expertise in on-the-job tasks, especially those that may be unsafe or too infrequent to learn in the workplace.

The Scenario-Based E-learning Certificate runs from January 22–23, 2018. The workshop begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. each day.

  • Identify the key features of a scenario-based e-learning design.

  • Identify appropriate tasks and objectives for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
  • Complete a design plan for a scenario-based e-learning lesson.
