Interactive Breakout Session BUS54
Business EDUCA: Scenario-Based Learning for Capability Development
Date Friday, Dec 8 Time – Room Köpenick
How can Scenario-Based Learning (SBL), impact my organisation? If you are a Learning and Development professional looking to make learning and training in your organisation more engaging then this is a session not to miss! You will walk away with: insight into what SBL can do; practical experience in generating scenarios (to develop learning modules & MOOCs) and; become part of a wider discussion on how to implement SBL and more interactivity for learners in your workplace. SBL allows learners to better engage with their training rather than just thinking of it as a tick box exercise and they can apply the learning to their everyday working life.
Seats for this session are limited. If you would like to participate, please make sure to sign up for it via MyOEB, the Conference app, after Wednesday, December 6.

Sheetal is a Medical biologist graduated from Brunel University. Since graduating she has worked at St George’s University of London for the Times Higher Award winning eLearning Unit.
She started her career as a Learning Technologist and has worked to become the eProjects Manager within the unit. Sheetal’s main focus of work has been on the use of virtual scenarios for teaching and training. She worked on the developments of virtual scenarios in virtual worlds such as Second Life, delivering virtual scenarios on mobiles, implementing virtual scenarios within the medical curriculum for small and large group teaching sessions and for self-directed learning exercises.
Sheetal has worked on a number of international projects, funded by The European Commission under the Erasmus+ program and is currently the project manager for the WAVES project. The project is taking all the lessons learnt from authoring and delivering virtual scenarios to make them more accessible to the wider teaching and training community and build a network of virtual scenario authors, users and learners.
Sheetal has led on a number of training and teaching workshops internationally to teach others to create and use virtual scenarios in their own organisations.
