Jay Clayton, English;
Matt Hall, Information Technology Services; and

Digital Storytelling in higher education emerged in the late nineties when UC Berkeley, collaborating with a number of other universities, created the Center for Digital Storytelling. Since then, the use of digital storytelling has become more popular at colleges and universities nationwide. During this Conversation on Teaching, participants will have an opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of how instructors here at Vanderbilt have incorporated this technique in their students’ activities, show examples of digital writing assignments, and discuss how they assess student projects.
- The University of Houston has developed a Website that has links to many useful resources around digital storytelling
- The Center for Digital Storytelling has many good case studies and examples of digital stories.
