The course is intended for Master’s and doctoral students from several disciplines (including the social sciences, education, the humanities and the natural sciences). Participants should have some experience of digital technologies and/or an interest to integrate the Internet and its services, and web-based environments for research and study purposes (e.g., for data collection, reflection, individual and collaborative work, etc.).
This course provides multiple channels for learner-driven knowledge creation by using digital storytelling as a tool. The course participants will be engaged in authentic experiences of how to design, implement and assess digital video stories. They will learn 21st-century skills connected with the story creation, and will combine and develop different literacies and modalities.
The course will also offer practice in how to use digital storytelling for research purposes and as a medium empowering learners of different ages and contexts. Also, we will use a web-based environment where participants will upload, share and edit video stories for individual reflection and group work as well as online interaction and collaboration.
Participants will develop 21st-century literacies and skills necessary for structuring digital stories in visual and textual format. In this way, they will be able to meet current scholarly and practical needs such as entering and sustaining dialogues related to their fields and studies actively, creatively and with a critical eye.
The course consists of a pre-course assignment, a course assignment and a final assignment. Student assessment will be based on participation in lectures, group work and written assignment completion.
The grading system is: pass/fail.
The course consists of lectures and workshops. During the course students will be involved in individual and group work.
