Tiffany Iles on the use of branching scenarios for PSW students.
This faculty showcase features Tiffany Iles, a Professor in the Personal Support Worker program and her use of interactive video and branching scenarios to act as an alternative to in person simulations during the pandemic. Online learners in the program view videos filmed in the first person to simulate actually living out scenarios in real time. At certain points, learners would be faced with multiple choice questions and different answers would lead to different subsequent videos. These scenario based ‘choose your own adventure’ style videos aided in making an online simulation more impactful to ensure learning outcomes were met in a digital environment.
