Marit StorhaugIn October 2005, 75 student teachers and 4 trainers from Oslo University College visited Glasgow. They stayed for nearly a week to learn about the history of industrialisation in Glasgow, visiting New Lanark and having lectures at Glasgow University among other activities. Another important purpose for the visit was a one day meeting with Steve Bell and Sallie Harkness of Storyline Scotland.
We met at our hotel McLays Guest House and the workshops with Steve and Sallie took place in the dining rooms there. Steve gave the students an introduction to theory and practice of the Storyline method and Sallie presented literature-based Storylines. These two sessions gave the students new ideas and really inspired them to work with Storyline. Two weeks later during a short practice period some of the student teachers designed their own Storylines and performed them in their classes. For their next practice period all the students are to make Storylines.
