Nearly seventy students with teachers from Oslo University College met Steve Bell and Sallie Harkness at the Pearce Institute in Govan, Glasgow on Tuesday 6th October 2009. This was the fourth year in a row that we got our annual introduction to the Storyline method. The previous years we`ve had an introductory course before attending the lecture in Scotland, but this year Steve and Sallie gave the students their first meeting with Storyline. The students had an inspiring and eye-opening morning with the Storyline presenters.
They were introduced to the core principles of Storyline in a “learning by doing “manner. They created families and played different roles as fathers / mothers / children. They went travelling throughout Europe, focusing on both geography and social issues, and always with a focus on learning, thanks to the “key questions”.
Since their return home many of them have already tried out the Storyline method in different classes during visits to schools. Their responses to the method have been nothing but positive, and their reaction has been that Storyline has proven a useful teaching tool for them.”
