Description

Todd Jones, Dept. of Philosophy, University Nevada Las Vegas

Among the most common suggestions one hears about how to improve pedagogy is for teachers to recast the information they are teaching into a narrative story form. In this talk, I argue that student understanding likely is improved by putting information into this form (even if student knowledge is not). Still, there are some disadvantages of the story form. This talk discusses how to maximize these advantages while minimizing the disadvantages of the story form.
