Wrong, Wrong, Right! Academic Digital Storytelling That Works (Innovative Practice)

Wednesday, January 21 | 11:00AM–12:00PM | Grand Sierra Ballroom I
Session Type: Professional Development
Ohio State University launched a Digital Storytelling program in 2005 to help academic community members learn digital tools for telling stories they care about. After each session of the program, the core team focused on what did and didn't work. Learning from our mistakes and participant feedback, we shifted away from personal storytelling toward a rigorous program that produces powerful academic narratives about teaching, research and outreach in almost every college of the university. This interactive session will ask participants to view examples, brainstorm ideas, and creatively approach applying our findings to their institutions' digital media programs.
