Summary: Instructional Designers are always looking for new strategies to make their learning more engaging, as well as ways to allow learners to practice using a new skill as they are learning. Scenario-based learning is a great example of a learning strategy that challenges learners while keeping them engaged and eager to practice the content being learned. 

Challenge: Finding innovative ways to present and practice content to keep learners engaged when practicing on the job isn't a viable option. 

Solution: After this training, instructional designers learned that scenario-based learning is an effective strategy to use when designing learning experiences. It can be used to increase problem-solving skills and is proven to have higher retention rates and excellent attention control in learners.

Results: Instructional designers who started implementing scenario-based learning into their learning design saw an increase in learner engagement as shown on follow-up surveys, as well as higher completion rates and improvements in trained job tasks.
