Telling stories is one of the most powerful ways that L&D can use to influence, teach, and inspire.
However, just tossing a story out to the audience doesn't always lead to the best results. We all have the power within us to craft stories that connect people to learning, and most times it's a matter of knowing what not to do.
As storytellers, none of us start the tale hoping for disengagement or boredom. What can we do to prevent disaster? The first step is seeing what exact problems can arise when using stories for teaching and training purposes. Only then can we ideate potential solutions to prevent it. Join this interactive chat as we build a story together and learn story-building lessons to help us write stories that bring power to our programs.
In this "Learn Something New" Wednesday
Richard Fleming and Austin Welch from Sage Media will:
- Walk us through the pitfalls that commonly arise when crafting stories for learning, how to overcome the risks, and ultimately create your "happily-ever-after".
- Walk us through a special exercise to help you plan your own powerful stories.
