digital storytelling in higher education

Digital stories are first-person narratives and multimedia presentations that combine digitized still images, video clips, voiceover narration and music. Creators of digital stories make sense of the world through inquiry, self-reflection and perspective-taking. Through a process that is out of necessity audience-centered and cooperative, digital storytelling promotes development of the self, civic engagement, deeper engagement with course content, and engagement with technology in more sophisticated ways.

Join the new IAS Collaborative conveners and a panel of faculty, staff and students who have taken and taught digital storytelling workshops at the University of Minnesota for a discussion about digital storytelling in higher education.

From June 22-26, more than 70 PES first year students and Peer Mentors came together to get acquainted with campus and share their personal stories through writing and producing their own digital stories.  See examples of these stories here.

This event was designated by the Office of the Vice President for Research to satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing education requirement.

This event occurred Thursday, November 21, 2013, at 4:00 pm, in 125 Nolte.
