02 Jul People—The Cast of the Monomyth Online
People are hungry for stories. It’s part of our very being. Storytelling is a form of history, of immorality too. It goes from one generation to another. — Studs Terkel
Through building connections and facilitating conversations, people are at the core of the Monomyth Online Framework. Without people there is no one to forge a path, and nothing to methodologically design. Think of the people in your courses as characters in a story you are writing. Who are you trying to empower? What skills will you give them to help them along the way? What will you learn from them?
Every why in your learning experiences should be tied to the people you’re designing for. Why they are there, what they need, what you need to guide them through the learning and to their final destinations. Education is defined in a number of ways, but people should always be at the heart.
