We offer practice-oriented training courses for schools and universities in which we provide practical examples and teaching materials in how to apply stories and storytelling in teaching settings.
Training courses are offered in German or English, online or face-to-face, for specific subjects or across subjects, for technically more or less experienced persons, and for variable durations.
