She underlined that in storytelling, every faculty has to act as a director and has to take along the students through the story frame by frame. She added that every student may have a different frame, as a faculty one has to bring them closer to some common frames based on the context. Therefore, critical skill of the faculty lies in moulding the frame of students in the direction of learning.
