Learning Environment Scenario Library

The Scenario Library for Teaching provides a repository of scenarios that illustrate breaches of a safe learning environment or best practices in teaching within the Faculty of Medicine. The scenarios have been developed in collaboration with content experts in each area.

This library provides experienced Faculty of Medicine facilitators with illustrative scenarios which can be embedded within workshops or presentations and serve as a tool to promote interactive participation. As the facilitator, you must select scenarios to align with your subject matter and intended learning outcomes. 

The scenario materials are housed in Teams.

Please contact fac.dev@ubc.ca when you:

  • require access to the repository of scenarios in Teams
  • are interested in contributing a scenario you have previously developed
  • would like consideration of a new scenario to be developed
  • require any assistance in accessing the Scenario Library for Teaching

Scenario Materials

Each scenario is provided as a 1 slide PowerPoint presentation. For some of the scenarios, additional reference slides are provided. The scenario materials are best suited for Presentation mode when facilitating. The presentation contains:

  • a simply formatted visual presentation slide
  • corresponding speaker notes detailing the scenario and providing facilitation tips
  • sample questions for you to revise for your participants to discuss
  • when provided, the notes also include evidence-backed research and cited references to provide you with additional context for your facilitation

Both the slide and speaker notes can be edited to include additional specific formatting, context, your own additional speaking notes, and your own specific questions to guide your group’s discussions.
