Stream 1: Digital Storytelling

Digital Storytelling

Digital storytelling, simply put, is the practice of using digital media to tell stories. It has been shown to promote deep reflection, help make sense of experience, encourage cooperative activity, build confidence, and create a powerful product that can have a transformative effect on the maker and viewer alike.

Students and postdoctoral fellows are being trained and mentored to create digital stories to document and share their training, mentoring, and research experiences in field education.

The guiding research question is: In what ways does the storytelling process enhance student learning about research training and mentorship?

The working group leading this Stream includes:

Grant Charles (UBC), Natalie Clark (TRU), Julie Drolet (UC), Michelle Reid (NVIT), Christine Walsh (UC)
