chapter  12
Uses of fiction in education
Pages 8

Gough (1993) says that he once saw in an English classroom a poster that said, ‘The universe is not made of atoms – it is made of stories’. That seems a fitting start to this chapter. In the chapter, I draw together some ideas about the use of fiction in higher education. As with other topics in this part of the book, there will be overlaps with earlier references. Again like other chapters in this part, I start by gathering general ideas (p. 155) and there are two more sections in which I explore the use of fiction in higher education (p. 146) and professional development (p. 150). Most of the examples relate to broad areas of education.
