Creative Storytelling - Myths, Fairytales and other Narratives
Aims and vision of the TIG:
In the Creative Storytelling-TIG we focus on the huge and widespread variety of uses and didactical possibilities of creative storytelling with all kinds of stories and narratives in education. The vision is hereby to disseminate an insight in and to understand the meaning and didactical importance of the field of creative storytelling in education - at all levels.
Format of the sessions:
All kinds of workshops, papers, presentations, power points, videos, digital storytelling-sessions, stop-motion and animations examplifications, slide show presentations, promotion of reports, story-telling-exercises, drama-programs, music-experiments, creative writing, narration-through-arts etc. are warmly welcomed in the Creative Storytelling-TIG.
As in previous ETEN-conferences, these contributions are expected to open up for both theoretical and practical discussions and reflections about the various kinds of educational and didactical experiences possible. In other words: we share good teaching practice.
Topic/theme for next conference:
For each conference the TIG-members decide upon a theme for the workshops. The theme of the 2018 conference in Rrrotterdam, we will board the theme of 'Forces of Nature'.
