ATD Certificate Program On Scenario-Based eLearning

Many contemporary job roles require problem-solving and critical thinking skills to take on new and unanticipated workplace challenges. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills. In addition, some work skills either cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences) or can only be learned over a long period of time.

Scenario-based eLearning presents employees with job-realistic situations that often use multimedia to solve them in a matter of minutes instead of days or weeks. This allows scenario-based eLearning to accelerate job competency.

Learning Objectives

After this program, you will be able to:

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

Who Should Attend

This program is suitable for anyone who has designed or developed traditional e-learning and is looking for alternative approaches to build critical thinking skills or accelerate workplace expertise. It is also useful for individuals who have or are starting a scenario-based e-learning program, or who are exploring the potential of the approach. In-depth knowledge of programming or e-learning design is not necessary.

ATD education programs are designed primarily for learning professionals—trainers, instructional designers, and organization development practitioners—but also greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is responsible for developing others, from managers to human resources specialists.
