IAS Collaborative Digital Storytelling Community of Practice

University of Minnesota Digital Storytelling Community of Practice

Upcoming Events: Workshops, Information Session, and a Planning Meeting

The University of Minnesota Digital Storytelling Community of Practice is pleased to announce a series of information sessions and workshops. This series is available to University of Minnesota faculty, staff, and students, free of charge. Registration is required for all events and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment is limited to 10 for the workshops. Enrollment is not limited for other events.

Information sessions provide an introduction to digital storytelling and its relevance for higher education.

If you are interested in creating your own digital story, take a 3-Day Workshop, during which you will write a script, record a voiceover, and learn how to combine images, voice, music, and text to create a 3 – 5 minute digital story.

If you are interested in teaching others how to create digital stories, take a 5-Day Workshop. During the first two days of the workshop you will learn how to facilitate a digital storytelling workshop. During the final three days you will be coached as you and your fellow participants lead a 3-Day Workshop. Please note that a 3-Day Workshop is a prerequisite for the 5-Day Workshop–we suggest that you register for both at the same time.

A planning session for the Digital Storytelling Community of Practice will take place Friday, September 13, 2013, 12 – 1:30 p.m.

For more information, please see the descriptions below. To register, go to z.umn.edu/dsreg

This series is funded by the Institute for Advanced Study and is sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Education and Educational Technology Services.
