Digital Storytelling Three Day Facilitator Training

Tuesday, March 10, 2020
12:00 pm
103 Hall Auditorium (Green Room)

The workshop is scheduled for March 10-12, and is being facilitated by Joe Lambert and Ngozi Oparah of StoryCenter, Berkeley, CA.

Berkeley's acclaimed StoryCenter, the founders of the international movement in participatory media known as Digital Storytelling, will bring a customized version of their Train-the-trainer workshop to Miami University Campus for three days, Tuesday-Thursday, March 10-12, as part of the 18th Annual Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (RCGS) Symposium this spring. The workshop will combine a two day version of their workshop where participants learn the approach and methods as Digital Storytelling coaches, with a one day special workshop for a larger group of participants to make a short media piece supported by the newly trained coaches and StoryCenter staff.  

The workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to the Seven Steps of Digital Storytelling
  • Group sharing and feedback in a facilitated Story Circle
  • Script writing and voice recording
  • Image preparation and storyboarding
  • Video editing: transitions, effects, music, and titles
  • Support on the production of a two to four minute digital story
  • Group story screening

More information about the workshop, and an application for registration, are available at https://libguides.lib.miamioh.edu/digital_storytelling/workshop. Registration is due by February 28.

Co-sponsored by WGS and Miami University Libraries, and planned by Librarian Jody Perkins.
