In the Fall of 2009, Susanne Sutton, lecturer of German with the Modern Languages, Linguistics and Intercultural Communication Department (MLLI) taught an Advanced German 303 topics course, "German Immigration into the US".
As semester project, students worked on their own digital stories (in German) in which they recounted an experience they had had while having worked, studied, or vacationed abroad. Students then teamed up with first-generation German immigrant women from the larger Baltimore area. Students and immigrants collaborated to produce the immigrants' personal digital stories during a two day workshop. At the end of the semester, after the students had finished the immigrants' stories, everyone came back for a 'story festival' to view the finished products.
