21st century digital storytelling

Target students

The course addresses Master’s and doctoral students from the educational sciences, the social sciences, the humanities as well as media and communication related studies. 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 aims to provide multiple channels for communication by using digital technologies and telling stories on Web-based social environments and platforms. Course participants will be engaged in authentic experiences of making and sharing stories with the digital in audio-visual and textual format. To this end, they will be introduced to various storytelling genres, narrative forms and styles. On the way, they will blend modalities and develop 21st century digital story making and telling literacies and competences.

For storytelling purposes, we will be using a web-based platform where participants will upload, share and edit their digital stories for individual reflection and group work as well as interaction and collaboration, face2face and online.
