Faculty "Train the Trainers" Workshop, Summer 2008

The Workshop

UMBC faculty started the summer with a five-day workshop in using digital storytelling in their classes. Ten participants in the "Train the Trainers" experience received intensive training in the creative and technical aspects of teaching digital storytelling in a variety of contexts. Ten additional participants had an opportunity to create stories during a two-day mini workshop aided by their own "personal trainer." The Center for Digital Storytelling returned for the third year to conduct the workshop. Here are the stories produced during the week.

This short video tells the story of the workshop itself.

The project is organized by the New Media Studio with additional funding from OIT.
