Why STORYWISE?

Context-driven learning based on a story is probably the oldest learning method in existence. Thanks to the story, the subject comes alive.This both captivates participants and helps them retain knowledge in a much more effective manner.

The STORYWISE Learning Format has been designed for creating short stories with active learning opportunities. It confronts the participant with appealing, realistic practical dilemmas making them want to dig deeper. They become ‘wise’ (knowledge building) during the ‘story’ (story experience).

With STORYWISE, you can share the most unusual situations and experiences in a single story. The participant is confronted with their own intended purpose ‘as part of the process’. The sentence ‘it is your intention…’ immediately provides someone with an intended purpose. This stimulates direct action: ‘What will you do?’ After choosing one of three possible options, specific feedback follows and a knowledge tree is created. The participant receives a reward for the best answer.
