Using Storytelling Strategies to Write Compelling Scenarios
Scenarios are an effective way to create authentic learning experiences, and the most memorable scenarios are the ones brought to life by compelling storytelling. But the ability to transform seemingly mundane tasks into powerful stories is something with which even the most prolific and celebrated writers struggle. In this session, you’ll explore storytelling techniques and discuss how you can use them to create scenarios that teach, engage, and move our learners. We'll practice applying these techniques to a section of a course, and you'll receive tips along the way that you can use to bring your scenarios to life.
After this learning experience, participants will be able to:
- Explain the role of scenarios in creating authentic learning experiences.
- Apply storytelling techniques to an existing training scenario.
- Describe how common writing techniques, when used in scenario, can affect the learning experience.
