A digital story is a short-form video in which someone narrates and shares personal, cultural or other aspects of their life with others. Next 4th February, the University of Graz organises the online Workshop “Digital Storytelling for Administrative Staff”. 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.

It is recommended that participants have at least a B2 level of the CEFR.
