Jan. 23 - 24, 2014 Digital Storytelling on the iPad Workshop

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 .
