Webinar Description: 

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

In Part 2 of this webinar, we will break down specific components of storytelling:  crafting narratives, interweaving experiences and emotions in storytelling, and setting the stage for a successful story. We will finish by discussing storytelling applications online and in-person as a method of education delivery. 

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

  • Explain the brain science and adult learning theory of storytelling;  
  • Discuss anecdotal vs. allegorical methods of storytelling with a focus on accessibility considerations;  
  • Recognize narrative arcs in storytelling; and  
  • Determine how storytelling can be used in OVW grantees own work while acknowledging cultural origins and diversities.  

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.
