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 even the most prolific and celebrated writers struggle with.

In this session, we'll explore a few strategic storytelling techniques and discuss how we 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 own scenarios to life.

Applications:

  • Distinguish effective scenarios from ineffective scenarios
  • Explain the role of scenarios in creating authentic learning experiences
  • Apply five strategic techniques of storytelling to an existing training scenario
  • Describe how common writing techniques used in scenario writing can affect the learning experience
