Why Tell Your Story?
Stories have been told throughout the ages for very specific purposes. There are main character(s) who have a problem and, with resilience, face and eventually overcome the challenges – not unlike the path taken by many major initiatives in higher education today. They can help problem solve, provide guidance, build confidence, or share the wisdom of those who have walked these steps previously. Stories can be used to help others overcome challenges and invite them to embark upon the next steps in their own journeys. The StoryTelling Rubric is designed to help our StoryTellers share their projects’ success and challenges with others who may benefit from this learning.
