Section Information for Fall 2016

Digital storytelling can be many things: narrative  . . . interactive . . . linear . . . nonlinear . . . academic . . . immersive . . . artistic . . . ephemeral. This class will investigate a range of questions through exploration, research, and experimentation: What is digital storytelling? How does it differ from other kinds of storytelling? How do we tell stories of the past or the present through digital media? How does digital storytelling work in the classroom?

The course combines reading, writing, and hands-on practice. Students will create a 10-minute digital story based on their academic research/area of study. Students will have an opportunity to examine issues through the content, context, and lens appropriate for their discipline and learning goals.
