Webinar Description: 

The Institute for Leadership in Education Development (I-LED) presents the third webinar of a 4- part series on interactivity and adult learning. 

As facilitators and educators of survivor-serving organizations, we use stories, experiences, and scenarios to disseminate information on violence intervention and prevention. As adult learners, we are 22 times more likely to remember a fact when it is told to us in a story.  This two-part webinar within our larger series focuses on storytelling as a mechanism for adult learning. In this first part, we delve into the history and tradition of storytelling in different cultures and the role of survivor stories utilized by DVSA and other survivor-serving organizations.   

As a result of this learning session, participants will be better able to: 

  • Recognize the history of storytelling as a central and formative aspect of non-European/western-centric model of education;  
  • Evaluate goals and intentions when engaging survivor stories 
  • Identify storytelling as a tool of interactivity and adult learning; and  
  • Identify common themes/tools used as a mechanism of storytelling 

Please note that registration will be capped at 100 participants to maximize participant engagement and interaction. This webinar will be recorded and disseminated to all registrants and will be uploaded on FUTURES website for additional viewing.
