Course overview

Storytelling is the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation, theatrics or embellishment. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.


Storytelling is an art form, which allows us to present the our cultural heritage to our children, friends, family and acquaintances.
We all grew up with storytelling in one way or another, whether it was one-on-one, in person, reading books or watching movies or listening to music. Through these stories, we found and created our identities and had the opportunity to find comfort in them.
Stories have always been told and retold and thus shape society and mythologies around our identities.
If you ask me what is the shortest distance between two people, I would tell you it's 
a story. The shortest way to build a relationship between two people is a story.

In this course we will discover the structure of a successful story, and how to engage your students in more interactive and creative learning.  

We will teach you how to build a strong team for developing good stories and creating fundamental bound with your students. 

Then we will explore three pillars of a good story.

After explaining and practising the theory, the participants will learn how to trigger, create and tell a good story.

Methodology
With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based on dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.
It consists of:
Theoretical work - If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.
Practical work - Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.
Coaching - Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.

Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening with Sathurday being optional for enjoing cultural activities. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
