Abstract

This chapter describes the evolution of storytelling in the workplace—from a face-to-face learning pedagogy to the use of storytelling as a Web-based learning pedagogy. The chapter is organized around an improvised version of Koppett’s (2001, p. 71) “story spine.” The story spine is a tool that Koppett offers to aid people in building stories. Simply, the structure is: (1) “once upon a time,” (2) “then one day,” (3) “and so,” and (4) “and in the end.” In this chapter, the story spine structure will help explain or describe the story of storytelling as a Web-based learning pedagogy, as well as aid in the description of its evolution. In addition, this chapter will ask “and so?”—or, what is the significance of this emergent phenomenon of storytelling as a Web-based learning pedagogy?
