Stories in research – Two parts in search of a message

By | May 4, 2015

In response to an interesting piece called “The Danger of a Single Student Story” published in Medium by Shawn White, I offered an extended comment dealing with the importance of stories in research.

This follows up on and relates to another article I published in the LinkedIn Pulse blog, called “Research is Hardwired“, in which I contended that the human learning model primarily involves generalizing from particular experiences in the form of stories or Moral Tales, and that the same rules apply to constructing effective learning stories as apply to formal social research. This has definite implications for competency-based education in particular, that I will be exploring further.

More to come soon.
