Berkeley's acclaimed StoryCenter, the founders of the international movement in participatory media known as Digital Storytelling, will bring a customized version of their Train-the-trainer workshop to Miami University Campus for three days, Tuesday-Thursday, March 10-12, as part of the 18th Annual Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (RCGS) Symposium this spring. The workshop will combine a two day version of their workshop where participants learn the approach and methods as Digital Storytelling coaches, with a one day special workshop for a larger group of participants to make a short media piece supported by the newly trained coaches and StoryCenter staff.  
The workshop will cover:
  • Introduction to the Seven Steps of Digital Storytelling
  • Group sharing and feedback in a facilitated Story Circle
  • Script writing and voice recording
  • Image preparation and storyboarding
  • Video editing: transitions, effects, music, and titles
  • Support on the production of a two to four minute digital story
  • Group story screening


This workshop is hosted by Miami University Libraries and is made possible by a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio and by matching funds from the Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies (WGS) Program at Miami University. It's open to Miami faculty, staff, graduate students, capstone students and leaders of non-profit organizations in the local community. All registration fees are covered by the grant. Faculty and graduate students affiliated with Miami's Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program may be eligible for a stipend.
