Using Dramatic Arts and Storytelling in Creating Effective Learning Outcome


The outcome of effective teaching and learning is when the learners can apply, analyze, evaluate, or create something new from the knowledge they receive. Failed learning is when the gained knowledge cannot be transformed but remains just information that later is lost from the learners’ minds and understanding. For learners, to be engaged many times they must get emotionally involved with the knowledge that they are learning. This research is therefore an attempt to reveal how using dramatic arts and storytelling can be such an effective tool in making learning successful. This is since the learners will be fully captivated through their feelings throughout the learning journey. And with their emotion engaged with the class, all learnt theory and information can be absorbed through their brains easily and they can understand easier and can remember for the longer period. The study is conducted through a live class in a hybrid format to train the financial advisors on wealth transfer. The class is done through switching back and forth between the hard knowledge on rules and information of wealth transfer by the professional financial trainer and the screening of the short thriller film where the investigators in the film also appear as the narrator of the whole class on site in the classroom. The research is done in collaboration with the financial training institutes CMSK and TMB Thanachart bank public company limited of Thailand.
