Innovation comes only from readily and seamlessly sharing information rather than hoarding it.

Tom Peters

We would like to share with you our experiences, findings and results from this project and our work with storytelling in adult education. Here you will find a growing collection of materials on the topic, which are freely available for you to use and adapt in the spirit of Open Educational Resources.

Methodological Framework

… serves as the basis for the StoryComp concept, which aims to provide self-directed training opportunities for adult educators in storytelling as a creative method for promoting competence acquisition among adult learners in basic education and civic education. It is both the scientific foundation of our approach and the starting point for the development of the online course as well as the workshop concept.
Here you can download the Methodological Framework as pdf: STORYCOMP_Methodological Framework

Collection of Stories

… from the partner countries and beyond. These stories, classified according to their possible purposes, will provide a veritable fund for (future) storytellers in adult education and can be used equally as inspiration or a direct basis for work. Or simply for your own entertainment and relaxation in between.
The Story Collection as part of our online course is here available and includes a search function. Take a look!
The collection of all the stories we compiled by the end of the project is also available here for download as a pdf: StoryComp StoryCollection

Do you know a story that we should definitely include? Let us know and send us an email –
we look forward to it:

A small collection in the collection are our Christmas stories. Enjoy them!
