    Science Meets Story: How to Use Storytelling to Create Better Learning



    Michael Boulter

    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?

      Session Description

      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.

      What you will learn:

      • The science behind story and why it’s so effective in learning
      • Tools for creating effective narrative structures for any learning medium
      • Real-life examples of storytelling in learning to inspire you to do it yourself
      • Bonus guide for all registrants sharing how to apply narrative structures to their own learning
