British photographer Daniel Meadows describes digital stories as “short, personal multimedia tales told from the heart.” Digital stories can be created by people everywhere, on any subject, and be shared electronically all over the world. Just like traditional storytelling, digital storytelling can focus on anything from recounting a personal tale or historic event to discussing the search for life in other corners of the universe and everything in between. However, as the name implies, digital storytelling enhances traditional stories through the use of recorded voice, still and moving images, and sound.

The DU Study Abroad Office is offering the opportunity to create your very own digital story in order to reflect upon the time you spent abroad. By combining your photos, videos, journal entries, or e-mails you will be able to create a focused piece that will communicate a lesson learned, the value of relationship, or a change in yourself. As students, we all have hundreds of things going on in our lives and probably have little time to reflect on our amazing experiences abroad. Take advantage of this opportunity to create something that is meaningful and lasting
The FREE Digital Storytelling workshop can accommodate 10 participants. Participants must be present for the entire length of the workshop on both days in order to participate. The dates and times are:
Friday, April 29, 2-6pm
Saturday, April 30, 10am – 6pm
