Created by Professor Anita Gonzalez, the Storytelling for Social Change MOOC introduces learners to the skills involved in using stories to deliver messages that affect audiences. The goal of this course is to empower global participants to craft stories that develop empathy and deliver impact. This introductory course allows learners to explore the many aspects of storytelling through the perspectives of theater artists and professional storytellers, and to better understand how elements of effective storytelling can enhance a mission of social impact. In addition, learners are asked to actively participate in their own storytelling creation process, and those of other learners, throughout the duration of the course. By the end of the course, learners will have created and shared their own stories (in various forms) for social change.
