Using Narrative in Higher Education

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    This paper reflects primarily on a study that explored the contribution that storytelling within higher education made to the learning experience of early years students. The study found that story telling provided numerous contributions to the students’ learning experience including the chance to relax. Storytelling was found to have an important social impact. Certain activities encouraged storytelling and storytelling could influence the direction of learning. The most interesting stories resonated for listeners.
    Using storytelling to capture student responses to a particular phenonomen will also be briefly introduced as the theme of my current research and an illustration of my continued attempts to use narrative within higher education.
