Story-Based eLearning Workshop

Story-Based eLearning Workshop | Designing effective online learning | Scoop.it
Story-Based eLearning
Using stories to engage eLearners
Stories and the use of narrative have been a powerful tool in learning for centuries. However in today’s learning environment, even well-intentioned eLearning programs are simply “massive data dumps.” Learners are exposed to massive amounts of disengaging content, with little knowledge being transferred and applied. Learners end up frustrated, unable to grasp and retain critical content for applying to their jobs.
You can re-energize and transform elearning programs to story-based and make them shorter, easier and faster for the learner.
The key is to start relating your content to story events. When you utilize the Story-Based eLearning design approach, you will:

Transform and re-energize your eLearning programs
Raise learners’ interactivity levels
Chunk and boil down your learning material to provide much greater impact
Create faster, easier and more effective learning
Cut training time significantly and improve learners’ performance

This innovative learning design and delivery method is a proven way to improve content retention.

About the workshop
The Story-Based Learning Design Workshop enables you to convert existing or new eLearning content into stimulating learning experiences.
You will learn how to transform procedures, products, policies, processes, technical data, rules and regulations into easy and immersive elearning. You will develop skills in creating interactive and discovery- learning methods where the content is embedded in real-life events.
In this workshop, you will learn to:

Obtain the “Proofs” based on research and scientific findings supporting the effectiveness of the Story-Based elearning Design.
Demonstrate the cost benefits of Story-Based elearning in customer satisfaction, reduction of production costs, savings from product support and compliance.
Differentiate the key distinctions between traditional instructional design and Story-Based eLearning design.
Implement the “Story-Based Instructional Design Process and Project Plan” – from interviewing SMEs to development of the eLearning program.
Use “Story Mapping Grid” to discover stories to match your technical and compliance content.
Construct modules and lessons that are only 3-minute long using a powerful story method.
Apply the “SRIA Model” (Set up, Relate, Interpret and Apply) in building Story-Based micro lessons.
Incorporate the “Oscillation Technique" and "Organics” of weaving small stories into a full program.
Apply the “15 Story-Based Design Models.”
Develop learning objectives, test questions and exercises using story-based methods.
Use “Process-Based Tracking Systems” to gauge learning and applications.
Develop reusable standards, templates and processes for Story-Based design and development.
Incorporate “Gaming Stories” in interactive designs.
Apply “Workplace Incidents” like troubleshooting, defects, errors, heroic endeavors, compliance failures, best formulas, tips, experiences, turnarounds, etc. as inspiration for designing eLearning.
Implement “Stacking Experiences” methods to facilitate the creation of“wisdom-based eLearning” solutions provided through a collections of stories and experiences. 


Who should attend?
The workshop is valuable to the following:

Subject Matter Experts(SMEs)
Instructional Designers
eLearning designers and developers
eLearning writers and producers
Trainers and presenters
Project Leaders and champions
Anyone who wants to apply the Story-Based Design to elearning
