How might projects combining digital storytelling and mapping help students learn?  Digital storytelling has become a prevalent pedagogy at small liberal arts colleges, as we explored in a previous impromptu videoconference discussion.  Aggregating and visualizing stories spatially, offers a layer of analysis and synthesis to the student learning experience.  Since residential liberal arts colleges often have a strong sense of place, this spatial aspect to storytelling seems especially promising. Yesterday, ten faculty and staff involved or interested in such projects joined me for a Google+ Hangout to discuss the challenges and benefits of place-based storytelling. « Read the rest of this entry »

Digital Scholarship has exploded at liberal arts colleges in recent years.  In order to capture a snapshot of that explosion, planners of the Digital Scholarship Seminars kicked off this year’s series with a panel presentation representing eight institutions: the Tri-College Consortium (Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, Swarthmore College), Hamilton College, Occidental College, University of Richmond, Wheaton College, and Willamette University.

With six presenters, there was quite a bit of information to take in.  If you missed it, or like me, want to hear it again, you can listen to the recordingand view the presenters’ notes, powerpoints, and links in this google doc.  In this blog post, I want to summarize themes I heard across all six speakers and during the following discussion. « Read the rest of this entry »

How does digital storytelling get used at liberal arts colleges?  This was the subject of yesterday’s impromptu videoconference discussion.  The concept was suggested by recent discussion on NITLE’s instructional technology mailing list and a new digital storytelling working group exploring multimedia narrative in the liberal arts and beyond. Inspired by this, we hosted a Google+ Hangout for a dozen people.  Discussion ranged over the definition and application of digital storytelling for teaching and learning, as well as practical considerations for implementing digital storytelling on a campus. « Read the rest of this entry »

At the recent annual meeting of AAC&U I had the pleasure of organizing and moderating a panel called “Crossing Borders and Creating Culture: Digital Storytelling for Study Abroad.” This panel culminated years of work that NITLE has contributed to advancing digital storytelling. It’s an interesting phenomenon to me because digital storytelling seems like such a narrow pedagogical tool but it has many different applications and responds to diverse qualities of liberal education. « Read the rest of this entry »
