Tell your story

(Uit je verhaal)

Autobiographical reflexivity is an important narrative competence that supports students in their professional development. A participatory design with students, teachers, and professionals has been used to develop the method “Tell Your Story” as a blended learning course with persuasive technology. A randomized controlled trial has shown that the course contributes to professional identity development, just like methods for critical reflection but results in a more engaging experience.
