To communicate certain principles and guidelines to employees to help them write more effective reports and carry out other non-technical communication.
A fully responsive, exercise-based training intervention (A Brandon Hall Excellence Award winner!)
A robust solution to help employees with informed decision-making to ensure effective communication, through the use of exercises designed with rich contexts and details to mimic reality.
Providing flexibility to attempt an assessment directly.
Designing learning material for a new job role, which, though defined, was minimally detailed.
Considering a high-risk setting such as the healthcare domain merited approaching the solution in an application-focused way. The intervention needed to be one that not only communicated the best practices, but placed learners in situations that they might normally encounter and be able to choose the best practices to address them. Upside Learning therefore designed a solution with two main modes – Learn and Play. The Learn mode offered the opportunity for direct content consumption through text, graphics, and images, along with supporting examples. In the Play mode, learners had the chance to identify patients at the risk of infection in hemodialysis settings. This activity enabled a direct application of the concepts and best practices the learners went through in Learn mode. The interactive scenarios mimicked the actual surroundings healthcare workers deal with in real life.
To develop a unique follow-up intervention to a Fire Safety and Prevention course that would provide opportunities for experiential simulation focused on various manufacturing systems.
A guided discovery approach to design a series of interactive ‘labs’ —a series of learning units categorized as per subject like welding, machining, etc.—wrapped into scenarios to provide learners the chance to experience mechanical and engineering related real-life situations and take suitable decisions.
Helping learners understand their roles better through employee or student characters performing tasks in real-life situations.
