(Auto) biographical Methodologies to Enhance Learning and Perspectives

Daniel John Diego

Abstract


In order to interpret and learn from complex issues of the past, we must have a deep and
well-versed understanding of human history; to do so, many educators and researchers have
demonstrated that teaching students to develop multiple perspectives through various modes
is one way to achieve this (Ciardiello, 2012). History and identity are documented in
narrative and (auto) biographical stories and texts which assist educators in teaching students
to develop a stronger awareness of the world they inhabit and the future ahead of them. (Auto)
biographical methodologies will illuminate societal developments, cultural changes, and
evolution of economic, political, and religious institutions. The aim of this literature review is
to understand how educators are using (auto) biographical methodologies to increase
awareness and empathy, develop multiple perspectives, and enhance learning of the past,
present, and future among students.
