Digital Stories @ UMBC

Stories from UMBC Faculty Workshops

For over ten years the New Media Studio has offered faculty workshops in digital storytelling. Initially these were facilitated by the Center for Digital Storytelling (now .) In 2008 ten participants in a "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."

Since 2009 the workshop has continued as a peer-to-peer experience with previous participants returning to work with colleagues in building a vibrant community of practice. Here are some examples of the stories produced through the workshop:
