Helping students and working professionals reflect on the experience-rich situations they encounter in order to create deeper, more integrated and meaningful understandings is one of the challenges facing higher education and the world of work as we grapple with the forms of awareness and capability that are required in a modern complex world. This Digital Story Telling Academy is intended to provide an introduction to the concept and techniques of digital story telling and to examine some of the ways that this technique could be used to support reflective learning and meaning making in the process of learning to be professional in higher education or being a more effective professional in the work place.


The purpose of the Digital Story Academy is to provide an opportunity for people to learn about how digital stories might be used in higher education and the professional work place and to learn how to make and evaluate a digital story. At the end of the process we anticipate that participants will :

·        Know what a digital story is and have been exposed to a number of illustrative examples

·        Know how they might be used in higher education and seen an example of use in a professional work setting.

·        Understand the process of creating a digital story and have made their own

·        Use some tool to evaluate the representations or learning and identity contained in example digital stories
