Graz launches a second edition of its successful workshop on digital storytelling
Due to the high demand, the University of Graz is offering a second edition of the Digital Storytelling Workshop. It will take place online next 10th June from 14:00 to 18:00 CEST.
A digital story is a short-form video in which someone narrates and shares a personal, cultural or another aspect of his/her life with others. In this workshop, participants will receive an introduction to digital storytelling and learn about the basic steps involved in the process of creating and facilitating the creation of digital stories. Course participants will apply a number of different methods and digital tools and create a first (prototype) digital story by themselves. This workshop is also suited for technological novices. You can find more information about digital storytelling and other digital and narrative tools on the official website of the Narrative Didactics Research Group.
Workshop prerequisites: All participants are kindly asked to bring a smartphone, tablet and/or laptop to the workshop, ideally with access to a few digital photos which can be used to create a digital story that roughly relates to one of the following topics: food, family and/or festivals. The device can be an additional one or the same one you are using to follow the online workshop.
The workshop will be held in English. It is recommended that participants have at least a B2 level of the CEFR.
Target group: All interested academic and administrative staff members of the Arqus Alliance partner universities.
Workshop leaders: Andreas Schuch and Dagmar Wallenstorfer, Center for Inter-American Studies, University of Graz.
