Break-out Session Summaries
All Workshop Notes Grouped by Themes the Breakout Groups were asked to Address.  This document presents the unedited notes that were taken during each breakout session. It is organized around the four main themes that breakout groups were asked to address. The four main themes are; definition/theory, research issues, research approach, and real world applications of storytelling method research. The four breakout groups were; case-based method of instruction, narrative-based, problem-based, and scenario-based.

All workshop notes are grouped by storytelling method (case-based, narrative-based, problem-based, and scenario-based). Each groups’ comments for all key themes (definition/theory, research issues, research approach, and real world applications) are clustered here.
