Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the main assumptions of the narrative learning theory developed by M. Carolyn Clark and Marsha Rossiter. The theory is based on the idea that people understand themselves as well as the changes over the course of their lives narratively. Narratives are a uniquely human way of giving meaning to life experience. According to the authors, narrative learning is a twofold concept: 1) learning through stories (listening to stories, telling stories, recognizing stories), 2) conceptualizing learning as a narrative process.
