Session Description:

As Learning and Development professionals we understand that education does not end after University; employees continue learn and develop throughout their career. To support employees we want to provide them with relevant training, enabling them to carry out their jobs effectively and efficiently. Many of the roles within a company are competency based, relying on the employee making decisions quickly and accurately in high pressure environments. A learning tool called Scenario-Based Learning (SBL) can be used to prepare employees for such roles. In this interactive breakout session, Bayer and St George's University of London (SGUL) have teamed up to show you how SBL can impact your organization and how you can apply it to suit the needs of your company.

The session will commence with a discussion about SBL and how Bayer and SGUL, two of the six key partners in the European Commission Erasmus+ Waves Project, are using SBL in business and academia. We will then guide you in creating your own scenario using an open source Virtual Scenario authoring tool called OpenLabyrinth. The session will close with a discussion about the different ways you can deliver SBL and develop more interactivity in your workplace.

Application on the Job:

Gain insight into what SBL can do for your organization through observing examples in both business and academia.

Generate scenarios using an open source software called OpenLabyrinth.

Discover different ways to deliver SBL in your organization, and how SBL can be used to generate more interactivity for learners in your workplace, to customize it to your learners' needs and preferences.
