Storytelling applied

27May09

Librarian Jennifer Burns of Toronto (full disclosure: I am friends with Jennifer) went to the 10th annual Northern Exposure to Leadership Institute held in British Columbia this year. I have heard positive feedback about this focussed small group learning opportunity. It brings together both new-to-the-profession and experienced librarians. Jennifer had some interesting thoughts about where the profession is going. More importantly she used a storytelling style in this article. Solid examples of storytelling and using narrative effectively are always appreciated and valued.

    A colleague here in Winnipeg also went to the NELI. I agree, it sounds like a fantastic learning experience.

    I really liked Jennifer’s use of the story – instead of just “telling” us something, we’re invited to listen and ponder.
