The Slovenian national seminar on first results in the StoryTeller project was held on 24th of May 2018 in Maribor. The coordinating organisation OZARA d.o.o. had a unique and interesting opportunity to present the Compendium and the Methodology of storytelling with the interested professional public in an on-line environment, holding the event as a webinar.
This very first seminar was prepared in collaboration with the DOBA Business School that uses modern and contemporary possibilities for on-line and blended learning. We have been invited as a host lecture in their master’s educational programmes within the framework of »Positive psychology« subject. Over 20 participants of this event from different countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia) were active at the seminar, with an estimated reach of around 100 students to see the recording of this seminar.
This was a wonderful opportunity to step into the world of storytelling and the features of future training possibilities as the partnership consortium sees it. The explorative nature of this seminar enabled a co-creative learning opportunity for participants to work on the tree of life already during the webinar. The final evaluation of this 1st seminar was an inspiration for future work as the majority of participants recommended this session and were enthusiastic about the common tasks and presented methodology. We thank the DOBA Business School for all the support and moreover for recognizing the contemporary nature of storytelling and its benefits for working with people at risk.
