Description: The power of a good story is undeniable: it can arouse wonder, create lasting memories, clarify concepts, connect disparate ideas into a world of meaning, and even forge strong bonds between storyteller and listener. But how can the power of stories be harnessed as a pedagogical strategy? This workshop begins with a sharing session among participants about their own teaching stories toward a collective understanding of effective teaching practices. In the second half of the workshop, the facilitator will share some tips in preparing a teaching portfolio with the aim of helping participants tell their own stories as teachers through that document.
