Storytelling in the 21st Century
Oftentimes, we use statistics to show how authentic our say is. We then forget that we have our own relatable stories to tell instead. The best messages we remember are the stories we heard when we were young. It is so because morals/messages were packaged into stories and that is how the message was not lost as time changed.
This course uses various examples to illustrate the different tools being taught. It also has assignments at the end of each section to ensure proper learning takes place. The aim of this course is to understand story-telling as an enlightening technique in establishing ideas so that the message would not only last in the minds of the audience but be transferred from one to another.
