2013 Digital Story Projects

During fall 2012, CETL offered a program to provide support to educators to enhance student learning and facilitate greater student involvement through creating a 3 to 5 minute digital story on at least one of the first four themes below:

  • University Liberal Education Learning Goals (LELG's), such as communication, critical thinking, diversity/global citizenry, creative expression or interdisciplinary connection;
  • Common misconceptions that students have about your field and offering the accurate view;
  • Writing across the Curriculum (WAC) - why you write and how writing has changed your life;
  • Why you teach - sharing your journey, motivations and inspirations as an educator;
  • and, with an Academic Service-Learning component, you may receive additional support.

The digital stories were produced with technical support provided by CETL's AudioVisual Specialist David Orts and funding support from CETL, as well as the Center for Academic Service-Learning, when applicable. Below are some of the early results.

In my developmental psychology classes, I find it vital that students interact with the populations we are talking about - to challenge stereotypes, observe behavior and thinking, and develop an understanding of others.  This digital story highlights my own experiences with AS-L in college as well as the experiences of two previous students through AS-L placement in my Adulthood and Aging class.
