We only have so much time to dedicate to formal learning—every moment needs to be impactful and relevant. Unfortunately, virtual classroom sessions tend to focus on getting as much content out there as possible and leaving it up to the learners to figure out how to make it all work. Adult learning principles state that adults learn best when content is relevant. So why do most virtual classroom lessons rely on lectures and slides? One of the most effective ways to ensure learning sticks is by getting learners involved, and scenario-based learning design does just that.

In this session you'll discover ideas for producing appropriate scenarios that resonate with your learners in the virtual classroom. We'll explore how to design three types of scenario-based activities in the virtual environment: problem-based learning, predictive learning, and play-based learning. You'll leave with detailed examples of each, and a template to walk you through seven steps for constructing scenarios in your virtual classroom design.
