Imagineering Stories: Digital Storytelling in Education and Research

December 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Led by Anastasia Pantazopoulou, the “Imagineering Stories” workshop is centered around digital technologies which have transformed the way we conceptualize and tell stories creating a space where anyone can express themselves. More specifically, engaging with the goal of the Intersections Group on Imagineering and the Technosphere, the workshop aims at familiarizing the audience with digital storytelling, a digital technology that lends itself to be used as an educational, research, and social-interaction tool. The participants will be actively introduced to the possibilities that WeVideo, a video editing platform, affords to researchers and especially instructors, and will reflect on ways in which they can incorporate and utilize digital storytelling in their classes to facilitate critical discussions and creative thinking, especially at a time when online classes are our daily reality.

This workshop is free and will be held over Zoom. However, attendance is limited to 29 participants. Please click here to register by December 7. Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis. For additional information, contact Anastasia Pantazopoulou at apantazopoulou@ufl.edu.

This event is organized by the UF Mellon Intersections Imagineering the Technosphere group, with additional support from the UF Center for Humanities in the Public Sphere; the UF George A. Smathers Libraries; and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
