  10. 11. Story Metaphor <ul><li>If a module presentation tells a story, then: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The content, activities and assessments are plot devices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The key events are the learning objectives and outcomes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The characters: the participants and staff </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The module story fits into a bigger universe: the programme and the workplace </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>That universe influences and enriches it </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Equally the story feeds back to the universe </li></ul></ul></ul>

  12. 14. Important Considerations <ul><li>Time/Constraints </li></ul><ul><li>Expertise/Perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Identity/Reputation </li></ul>
  13. 15. Time <ul><li>Timeline of the events and devices that drive it </li></ul><ul><li>The character can identify where they need to go, how they will get there and when will they need to be there </li></ul><ul><li>Preview of the story element so the character can get an overview of what’s going on. </li></ul><ul><li>Previews will be used to attract potential participants, particularly from the IMKS forum </li></ul>
  14. 16. Expertise and Perspective <ul><li>Leverage the expertise of characters to provide different perspectives and metaphors for the plot devices and story events (looking at the dynamic tensions, dynamic involvement of theory vs. practice) </li></ul><ul><li>Character development can be referred to (via PDP/CPD management) </li></ul><ul><li>Characters can be allocated to teams/sets to tackle an overarching part of the narrative </li></ul>
  15. 17. Identity and Reputation <ul><li>Connect back story with character development via their existing mechanisms </li></ul><ul><li>Perspectives and resolutions can be taken out into the wider domain to see how they are approached (take a discussion from the forum to linkedIn for example) and vice versa </li></ul><ul><li>Content generation and sharing in a peer type context (workplace <--->programme) </li></ul>
