How do the stories of your life illuminate your journey and spark your creative voice?
As part of StoryLab's continued effort to develop innovative approaches to story development and story sharing, the Center for Digital Storytelling is offering a Webinar Series, giving you the opportunity to take part in powerful storywork right where you are through a series of online lecture and working sessions in creativity and creative writing. The series is led by CDS's Founder, Joe Lambert, as part of the development of his upcoming book to be released in the fall.
The series is aimed at professionals working with storytelling in media arts, arts education, and community arts, as well as expressive arts and other therapeutic approaches to art-making. But anyone can gain from the experience.
The series will begin in mid-March with eight bi-weekly sessions (monthly in the summer). To learn more about the new series, visit the Seven Stages Webinar Series page on the CDS website.
On January 23 and 24 the New Media Studio and the Department of Media and Communications Studies will offer a two-day hands-on workshop exploring digital storytelling using the iPad. The workshop will center on the creation of short reflective digital movies using iMovie. Through this experience, participants will gain insight into the possibilities that visual assignments offer for their own teaching. The workshop will also include time for pedagogical discussions and showcasing what some UMBC faculty are currently doing to integrate new tools in the classroom. Participants will orient themselves with various education and digital production apps, sharing how the iPad can become a valuable asset in their classrooms (planning, content delivery, and creative production).
We will use new iPad Airs provided for the workshop by DoIT. Lunch will be provided by the Faculty Development Center. The workshop will run 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day and will be held in the Dresher Center conference room (PAH 216.)
The workshop is limited to eleven participants and is open to UMBC faculty, staff and graduate assistants. Priority will be given to faculty. To reserve a seat in the workshop please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
