- 2016 Digital Storytelling Workshop – New Dates
A three-day digital storytelling workshop, originally scheduled for January 2016, has been rescheduled for Feb. 24-26, 2016. Academic Technologies will conduct the workshop jointly with the Center for Digital Storytelling (http://storycenter.org).
The workshop will focus on using iPads to create a three- to five-minute digital story. Participants will craft and record first-person narratives, collect still images, video, and music with which to illustrate their pieces, and work through tutorials that enable them, with facilitator support, to edit their own stories. Experiencing the process first-hand will give participants an understanding of how and why to incorporate digital storytelling into the classroom.
Faculty members interested in attending should access http://go.wlu.edu/CDSworkshop to fill out the application.
As a bonus, breakfast and lunch are provided all three days of the workshop.
The University has classrooms in a variety of sizes and configurations. Approximately 80% of these include built-in presentation equipment.
