Ethical and Assessment Considerations
Pages 17

Stories provide opportunities to examine and learn from complex professional situations through reflective dialogue. Attempts to incorporate stories into learning and assessment processes can be complex, and a range of ethical issues must be considered. This chapter begins by discussing some frequently occurring ethical issues such as confidentiality, anonymity, ownership of stories, the problem of projection and presentation of practice dilemmas. Even though such issues can cause serious concern, many educators remain enthusiastic about using storytelling because of positive learning gains made by students.
