405 Using Simulations to Capture and Deploy Experience

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Thursday, October 30

UI/UX Design

Cézanne 1 & 2

Experience is the most meaningful type of learning learners can engage in. Experience implies using skills in context and applying critical thinking to any situation. We have to provide as realistic an experience as possible to learners without putting people at risk. Multiple-branching and multiple-outcome simulations help learners develop critical judgment to address what to do in real scenarios, creating true experiences that will translate easily to real-life situations.  

In this session you will learn the distinction between experience and instruction and explore the methodology of experience design. You will explore scenarios from simulations that provide insight and help you better understand the tools and levers of experience design and how you can leverage them. You will begin to develop a simulation by applying the concepts of experience design to a business or performance challenge. You will also review some of the different tools that are available in the market to develop applications without the need for programming.

In this session, you will learn:

  • To understand experience design as a tool for achieving the development goals of your organization
  • How to determine when to use simulations to support your overall learning objectives
  • How to make the simulation experience “sticky” to support learner retention and application
  • How to effectively capture and deploy experience in a simulation format

Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.
