One of our roles as learning professionals is to extract stories and use those stories to help learners make connections and simulate situations that influence a change in behavior.

Intended Audience

Senior-level instructional designers, and training managers.

Overview

Storytelling is not just a trend—it’s the primary way humans learn about the world. If you’re leaving stories out of your training, you’re missing an opportunity to engage for authentic learning. One of our roles as learning professionals is to extract stories and use those stories to help learners make connections and simulate situations that influence a change in behavior. During this session, you’ll learn practical tips and techniques for designing learning experiences with a narrative structure, immediately capturing and keeping learners’ attention, and transforming a boring training course into a compelling adventure. You’ll also learn how brain research supports story-based learning, and suggestions for helping training teams adopt these principles into their design processes.

Outcomes

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain why story-based training design enhances learner attention and learning outcomes.
  • Guide a SME through an information-gathering session that organizes learning objectives and topics into a story-based learning structure.
  • Describe strategies for encouraging training teams and companies to adopt story-based training design.
