    AnastasIa Steel Russian Federation I am truly grateful for this course. It explains the basics of storytelling. For me it was really helpful as we are about to start a nursery and view storytelling as one of the main parts of a learning process. Professor Sturm, you are an amazing narrator. 2015-05-18 19:05:46

    Joanna Anderson United States of America Great fun and a fantastic lecturer. Love the topic and models. However, I'd like much more breadth and concrete examples of applications of story telling to education. Otherwise lovely. 2015-02-03 18:02:36
