For students who may be interested in thinking critically about service, social problems, and community leadership while learning the art of Digital Storytelling…
GEN ST 349: “Digital Storytelling and Community Leadership”
Spring 2011, Thursdays 4:30pm-6:20pm, Mary Gates Hall 206
SLN# 13877 (2 credits)
Explore the question: “What is Community-based Leadership?” using the teaching & learning method of Digital Storytelling.
Students will work in teams of three to create a Digital Story of 3-5 minutes in length that reflects a shared view of community leadership. Storytelling techniques, definitions of community-based leadership, and hands-on video production skills will be explored through in-class discussion, guest speakers, and individual advising. The course will conclude with a public viewing on campus of the Digital Stories.
Interest and experience in serving the community is essential. Filming and editing experience is a plus, but not required. We will be covering basic filming & editing with Flip Video Cameras and Editing with iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker (laptops will be available to those in need).
