Collaborative scenario design and delivery

The modern workplace is a complex network of interdependencies, where communication and collaboration across disciplines are essential to complete most tasks. But when it comes to creating learning programmes and assessments, it’s too often left to an individual to complete. 

At Resimion, we believe that collaborative scenario design and delivery is essential for building the best scenario-based learning environments. By working together, teams can pool their experience and leverage their expertise to develop intuitive and immersive assessments that test application as well as awareness. – and here’s how. 

The power of collaboration

The concept of collaborative curriculum design is well established in education. Evidence has demonstrated that by collaborating, teachers develop a learning programme that’s more effective and logical, delivering a better outcome for students and learners.

In an influential 2016 review of collaborative curriculum design teams, researchers Voogt, Pieters and Handelzalts’ found that not only did learners benefit, but so did teachers – building connections between curriculum expertise, increasing their subject knowledge and educational insights.

By working together, teachers and learners benefit from a more advanced and higher-quality learning environment. The principles can be directly applied to scenario-based learning.

Research and real-life experience demonstrate that collaboration benefits the learner, the teacher and the provider. 

A question of perspective

Designing a scenario alone is all about perspective. You’re positioning yourself above a problem looking down, mentally arranging all the pieces of a story. You’re building a logical and linear narrative. 

Whether you’re designing a scenario for healthcare, medicine, forensic science or another speciality, every interaction along a pathway has impact and implications for multiple stakeholders. So how do you capture this complexity?

Collaborative scenario creation through Resimion facilitates the development of genuinely multi-disciplinary experiences that are richer and more realistic than those created by individuals.

Shared scenario design enables a scenario to be viewed, amended and improved by users who have different perspectives, specialities and experiences.

The ability to work with colleagues on scenarios provides an informal peer-review process, with colleagues and friends able to critically analyse, amend and improve the scenario.

Multidisciplinary collaboration

Unlike other scenario-based learning platforms, Resimion is entirely cloud-based, which makes it the perfect platform for collaborative learning management and assessment delivery. 

Individuals, teams and even whole departments can work together to develop detailed scenarios that will stretch students to their limits, and then proceed to deliver them in a collaborative way as part of a module or programme structure.

When you create a scenario in Resimion, it’s given an owner who retains editorial control. The scenario editor has the power to invite others to the group, giving them permissions to edit and deliver scenarios – while restricting or removing the right to make changes, such as deleting scenarios. 

Team-based Delivery

Based in the cloud, users can access, edit and update scenarios whenever they choose, and wherever they are. The process is iterative, with creators and editors able to copy and re-use parts of scenarios across groups.

The powerful Resimion platform is built for co-creation and co-delivery because we recognise the potential for collaboration and have built it into our platform from the very start. 

There are no limits to the number of times you can edit a scenario, and there are multiple scenario types that can be tailored to your service or speciality. Copying scenarios can be done with the click of a button and takes just seconds.

Collaboration doesn’t need to be limited to scenario design; teams can work together to develop and deliver entire modules. As institutional costs continue to rise, virtual learning environments provided by Resimion are the future. 

Collaborative delivery allows module and programme leaders to track students across scenarios in one place, whilst at the same time allowing individual trainers or lecturers to create and deliver scenarios using individual expertise.
