Story-Based Learning Design and Delivery Certificate: How to Engage and Inspire Overloaded Learners


This online certificate program is coming soon! Check back for dates or contact us and we'll email you new dates at they become available.

Instructor:
Ray Jimenez, author,
3-Minute e-Learning, Scenario-Based Learning: Using Stories to Engage e-Learners; Do-it-Yourself e-Learning: 100 Ways to Simplify Design and Development and the upcoming book Story and Experience-Based Impacts: Using Stories and Experiences to Impact Learning and Performance.

Certificate Overview:

Workplace learners are savvier, busier, and more prone to multi-tasking than ever before. In their media-rich world it's more and more difficult to reach this increasingly demanding and cynical audience with the traditional instructional learning typically found in classrooms, e-learning and mobile learning. However, storytelling has been rediscovered as a powerful tool to help us make sense of the daily data barrage we encounter at work--and increase learning recall, involvement, and application. This certificate will help you design, implement, and deliver Story and Experienced-Based Learning and inject them into your programs. You will learn the skills, steps, processes, and tools to implement this inexpensive and effective learning initiative. This program is non-software specific and focuses on practical tips to get you started with effective storytelling immediately while enhancing your competitive advantage and upgrading your training and learning department’s capacities.

Program Details:
Story and Experience-Based Learning is an approach in which instructional designers and facilitators work together to convert learning objectives into small, provocative and memorable learning themes and stories. Learners are engaged because these stories are relatable and they get to share and contribute their own stories and experiences. This results in highly interactive and rich experiential learning in which you can achieve a 99.9% audience participation and interaction.

In this certificate, you’ll assess your own story weaving skills, acquire new skills to create and facilitate stories for your learning environment and explore the steps, processes and tools to immediately implement an inexpensive and effective learning initiative.

What the Experts Have to Say About Storytelling

We can tell people abstract rules of thumb which we have derived from prior experiences, but it is very difficult for other people to learn from these. We can more easily remember a good story. Stories give life to past experience. Stories make the events in memory memorable to
others and to ourselves.
Roger Shank
from
Tell Me A Story

Stories are the single most powerful weapon in a leader's arsenal.  
Howard Gardner
Harvard University

Why storytelling? Well, the simplest answer to your question is that stories talk to the gut, while information talks to the mind.
