The Learner’s Journey

Workshop language: English

Humans experience themselves as the protagonists of a story they continuously tell about themselves and their world. Identity can be thought of as a ‘mythology of self’, where each experience that has shaped us is filed a way as a story worth telling and retelling. As facilitators we can design and structure our courses, interventions, inputs, in short: learning experiences, in a way that harnesses the momentum generated by a good story. The theories and insights of how good stories are built as incredibly effective as design principles for Learning Experience Design. Story-making, instead of story-telling, with the learners as the protagonists.
