Welcome to the Create a Scenario professional
development workshop. We are excited to help you develop a new scenario
in your area of expertise!
We are under a tight deadline, and all
the materials you develop must be detailed enough for yourself or
for another instructor to deliver to classrooms of students. But
you have a lot of freedom here to design your scenario in the most
authentic and educational way possible.
In our experience developing
and working with scenarios, we have discovered three critical ingredients
in successful scenario building:
Local industry is involved early and
often. This ensures the authenticity and applicability of your
new scenario. It also lends credibility to your course, because
the students will more easily accept its relevance to their professional
Student learning outcomes are clearly communicated from the
start in order to ensure the validity of your scenario. You can
then develop assessments that determine if these learning outcomes
are met by the students participating in your scenario.
Peer review is extremely valuable. That is why
we are asking you to stay within the schedule, and review someone
else’s work each time you submit a task.
We have developed
five tasks that lead you through a process, incorporating those
important elements at each point. So if you complete the five tasks,
you will end up with a relevant scenario for your class.
