Abstract

The fallacy that many post-secondary curricula are optimized to facilitate student learning is exposed by a parable of creating a curriculum to teach dragon slaying. As an alternative model, the Story-Centered Curriculum is introduced and an example of using this approach to redesign an ecommerce master's program is presented. Examples of the Story-Centered Curriculum being used in both Master's-level and high school are described.
