“I’d love to add stories and storytelling in my lessons, but they are long, tedious, and hard to do, not counting the fact that it’s costly.”

Today we are bombarded by multiple stimuli from all forms of media. Studies have shown that we are most likely to respond best to news, social media, and lessons that are hard-hitting and present vivid stories. We jump and respond quickly to the content, immersing ourselves in the rapid-fire, short, and instant stories or hyper-stories.

Hyper-stories are today’s rapid medium of communication.

The challenge is: how do we, as trainers, designers and developers, and subject matter experts (SMEs), use the most important part of the story to catapult our learning lessons into the minds of our learners?

Topics to cover:
  • Why are learners easily glued to hyper-stories?
  • What part of the story is so compelling that learners must respond to it?
  • How do you select the hyper-story that becomes the important lesson?
  • How do you apply the 5-Step Hyper-Story Lesson Creation process?
