Implications of Narrative and Interactive Narrative for the Design of Problem-based Learning Environments
Save to My Collections
Narratives are an essential part of everyday life. We utilize stories to entertain and to educate. Problem-based learning is a widely advocated approach for promoting deep exploration of content through the development of inquiry skills. PBL can be greatly enhanced through the effective use of narratives to provide engaging learning contexts. Yet many instructional designers are not skilled in developing compelling narratives. A set of design principles for PBL, based on key aspects of narrative and interactive narrative, are presented.
