CIC Digital Narratives Conference

May 18, 2009

This past weekend, I attended the CIC Digital narratives workshop at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. There Asian Americans – distinguished professors, students and leaders from across the nation met to learn to create short digital narratives.

The OSU Digital Storytelling Program (DSP) is a collaborative project of the Digital Union (DU), Faculty and TA Development (FTAD), Technology Enhanced Learning and Research (TELR), and the University Libraries.
Program Mission

The OSU Digital Storytelling Program’s mission is to help the academic community communicate their passion for teaching, research, and outreach through personal, engaging storytelling. We accomplish this through workshops, showcases, presentations, and publications, emphasizing particularly the workshops in which participants learn to use digital tools and interactive story circles to craft powerful narratives. We are committed to the story as an important medium for reaching new audiences and fostering new collaborations within the academic community, as well as with the citizens of Ohio and the global community. We are committed to the process as much as the product because we believe the process lends itself to digital storytelling as a teaching tool.

Goal 1: To provide the campus community with workshops and other learning opportunities that introduce new technologies and multimodal literacy concepts in order to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for producing digital stories in an academic environment.

Goal 2: To reach new audiences and foster new collaborations by providing showcases, conference presentations, and scholarly publications that describe and evaluate the effect of the DSP on teaching, research, and outreach at OSU.

Goal 3: To preserve and provide free access through the World Wide Web to digital stories created at OSU.

Goal 4: To act as a clearinghouse for information about digital storytelling at OSU.
