Description

For years, storytelling has been used to pass down history, customs, rituals, and legends. Because a good narrative can tap into our emotions, we’re more likely to remember the story. By weaving narrative and curriculum together, we can provide our learners with an experience that can not only entertain them, but improve retention.

Learn how to:
  • Start with a character your audience can relate to
  • Use emotion to better help information stick in their brains
  • Let your audience become part of the narrative
 
We’re all storytellers, whether that’s telling stories to our children, posting pics from our latest trip, or sharing our weekend adventures with colleagues. Why not use the power of storytelling in your course too?
