Faculty Perspectives on Digital Storytelling
I appreciate the way digital storytelling engages students in a creative project for a public audience.
Students use digital storytelling in my courses for reflective learning and synthesizing research, but it also prepares them to be critical producers of knowledge using media that are especially pertinent to mass communication in the 21st century.

Urban Social Geography
My students use digital stories to explore the complexities of becoming an educator. The medium of a digital story pushes them to conceptualize ways to express their experiences beyond the written word.
