What’s the first word that pops into your mind when you hear “compliance training?”
If you’re like most course designers (and learners), you know that compliance training isn't typically where one finds showcase e-learning examples.
That makes sense. Most compliance courses are designed to share information and create awareness more than change behaviors. Some topics, such as preventing workplace violence, can be designed as information- and performance-based courses.
The challenge for course designers is striking the balance between information sharing and relevant interactions. And that’s what this week’s e-learning challenge is all about!
Challenge of the week
This week your challenge is to show scenario examples designed to prevent or address workplace violence.
You can structure your demo any way you like—just be sure to include some type of scenario.
If you’re looking for a practical model, take a look at Tom’s 3-C scenario model. We use this model a lot in our workshops because it’s simple and works with any content.
Thanks to Raye Shilen for suggesting this week's challenge topic.
