Storytelling grows up: using storytelling as a reflective tool in higher education
The paper argues that approaches seeking to support higher cognitive thinking skills
such as reflection should be grounded in a pedagogical approach such as constructivism and storytelling is proposed as an engaging and complementary approach to developing reflective thinking skills. Students tell stories about their experiences to each other every day, and this research proposes using these stories as the basis for reflective discussions. The theoretical basis for using storytelling as a reflective tool will be critiqued.
