Science Meets Story: How to Use Storytelling to Create Better Learning
Telling stories is one of the most powerful ways to forge connections, share knowledge, and draw people in. It’s also one of the most effective ways that people learn. When done right, storytelling does more than capture attention—it activates a brain state that makes people more open to learning and growing.
Are you using the full power of story in your learning experiences?
This webinar will share the science behind story and why it’s so effective in learning. We’ll cover the brain science of storytelling, share several narrative frameworks for structuring a story, and see real examples of story-based learning in practice across different mediums and modalities.
This session will challenge the idea that stories in learning are limited to scenarios and videos. We’ll explore practical ways to integrate elements of story throughout the learning process to bring a story—and a learning experience—to life.
