If you don’t know, you probably don’t need to come!


We’ll combine talking and doing. We’ll talk about what we know about digital storytelling use and usability, online storytelling concepts, tools, and training and working with your newsroom. Plus you’ll do hands-on audio, video and editing, putting your assignment together in the digital media lab. We’ll host dinner and critique submitted stories, and finish the last day showcasing the stories participants do at the workshop.
