Project Aim

Introducing the magic of storytelling into adult learning, She’herazade introduced storytelling and the use of storytelling techniques as an educational strategy and a pedagogical tool in formal and non-formal adult learning. The project developed adult learning practice using stories and oral storytelling in order to enhance social integration of disadvantaged members of society and to improve the language skills of adult learners.

Outcomes

Sheherazade helped adult learners:

  • Gain communication skills
  • Develop imagination and creativity
  • Develop foreign language skills
  • Improve intercultural understanding
  • Construct personal values
  • Explore their cultural roots
  • Build competences for inclusion
  • Material, methodologies and examples will be published as the project develops.

As the UK partner, Superact delivered a pilot of this project during spring 2013 in collaboration with ‘Bristol Refugee Rights’ and storytellers Iwan Kushka and Martin Maudsley, before going on to be a key partner in the international project.
