Pedagogical and Professional scenarios describe a concrete pedagogical or professional intervention and the relevant activities in a particular context. Just as generic scenarios they can be supplemented by a set of use cases as well as list of critical features, open issues, and related scenarios. Pedagogical and professional scenarios can be used both to describe past experiences as well as envisioned interventions.
Their purpose of the pedagogical and professional scenarios is twofold. Firstly their purpose is to concretize the underlying rationale of an intervention by describing the specific methodical means (e.g. didactical strategies) and the context of the intervention and why these are meant to lead to the intended outcomes. In this sense they provide mediating artifacts for those who are involved in planning, implementing and carrying out a pedagogical or professional scenario. Secondly they provide the background for the design of tools relevant to the described intervention. They describe the activities that shall be supported by the tools in order to support the learning process. In order to fulfill this second purpose the pedagogical and professional scenarios should be supplemented by a set of relevant user stories.
The pedagogical and professional scenarios are written, revised and updated by the respective
pedagogical partners and / or those who actually carried out or is going to carry out the intervention (for example the actual teachers of a course).
An example of a pedagogical scenario developed by UNINE on training speech therapists is available at:
