In this chapter, three approaches to using storytelling as a method for teaching and learning sustainability in higher education are discussed. These approaches include SusTelling as a method for instruction, as a method for producing new knowledge, and as a method for science communication. All approaches are extensively discussed, and examples are provided in the form of case studies. This chapter also elaborates on how these approaches reflect the tension inherent in using storytelling for sustainability, and how pitfalls should be avoided for storytelling to unfold its potential. This chapter concludes by highlighting three insights: the importance of the functions of storytelling, dealing with contingency in storytelling, and the largely undeveloped potential of employing storytelling in higher education.
