TRANSCRIPT

  • Slide 1
  • Digital Storytelling Bootcamp: Digital Storytelling Bootcamp: Learning the Basics of Using Digital Photos, Audio and Video as a Precursor to Incorporating Multimodal Assignments in the Classroom Presenter: Jennifer Sias, Associate Professor
  • Slide 2
  • Facilitator: Jennifer Sias, Associate Professor and Director of Research, Information Literacy & Instructional Services (University Libraries) Abstract: Multi-modal compositions and multi-genre assignments are being embraced in higher education by faculty who are open to students demonstrating their knowledge, understanding and mastery of concepts through multiple literacies. Many students flourish when they have opportunities to express themselves not only in the written form but also through the visual arts, audio and video and are capable of producing persuasive and moving works, including public service announcements, podcasts, vodcasts (video podcasts) and digital stories. While many students of this generation seem adept in using (or at least have some familiarity with) various forms of technology to produce these types of assignments, professors who may not have a working knowledge of all things video, audio, etc. may be reluctant to incorporate digital storytelling and other multi-modal assignments in their courses. This workshop will be designed to give participants hands-on experience in taking digital photographs, recording digital audio and shooting digital video in teams to produce mini digital stories. Professor Sias will then demonstrate how to import participants digital photos, audio and video for basic editing using widely available audio and video editing software. This is a two-part workshop; participants for this session must also register for Part II on Wednesday, 8:45-10:45 (Workshop 5B).
