Off the Cuff on Scenario-Based Learning

Alexander Salas interviewed me on Off the Cuff about scenario-based learning. Listen to us chat about types of scenarios for learning, how to use them, and more.

I had the pleasure of speaking about scenario-based learning with Alexander Salas, Chapter President of ATDCFL (Central Florida) for his “Off the Cuff” interview series. Alex is also the Chief of Awesomeness for eLearning Launch and on Twitter as @StyleLearn. It’s always fun to hang out with Alex (especially since we missed seeing each other at LSCon this year).
