The online classroom environment can sometimes cause students to feel isolated, both socially and cognitively. Digital storytelling creates a framework that can bring the online classroom to life, energizing social-cognitive dynamisms, and promoting a more authentic sense of community in the virtual teaching and learning space.
During this seminar, presenters will describe how storytelling in online learning facilitates a welcoming space, provides a structured springboard for personal agency empowering students’ thinking and creative expression, and personalizes those expressions to bridge connections that catalyze deep meaningful associations. The plot will thicken when an online teaching faculty member shares anecdotes of digital storytelling, which showcases learners’ coursework as a conduit for authentic opportunities for connections.
This seminar can be viewed online or face-to-face at the Center for Distributed Learning.
