Webinar: Digital Storytelling in Higher Education

Digital Storytelling has been shown to be a powerful multi-dimensional tool for institutions of higher education to use to assess the experiences of and increase the impact of first-year experiences, community-engaged learning experiences, student success initiatives, and student learning outcomes. For the past 20 years, the Center for Digital Storytelling has been supporting faculty, staff, and students in higher education to reflect on processes that take them out of the classroom and into the world, learning about themselves and the resources they have to adapt to succeed in new contexts. Join us on February 27th from 1-3pm MST to learn how two Colorado institutions have integrated digital storytelling and digital narrative into curricula and programming to innovatively engage students and enhance student service and learning.

Presenters:
Brian Dickson: Program Chair, College Composition & Reading – Community College of Denver
Lisa Joslyn: Digital Storytelling Coordinator & Student Success Center Coordinator – Community College of Denver
Marty Otanez: Assistant Professor of Anthropology – University of Colorado Denver
Daniel Weinshenker: Rocky Mountain/Midwest Region Director – Center for Digital Storytelling

SPOTLIGHT ON ENGAGEMENT

Here at CCMW we are tasked with “leading the evolution of the engaged campus,” but what does that mean? What better way to tell the story of engagement than by looking at an example of an engaged student. We would like to introduce you to Melissa Tilleman, a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming (UW), to help tell the story of how CCMW supports a campus in creating opportunities to produce engaged students.

Behold the power of service.
