This faculty development workshop will focus on how faculty can develop creative digital projects that enhance the visibility and impact of their collaborative work with community partners and that expand opportunities for student learning.
About the Session:
Would you like to learn about new ways to communicate the work that your students do with community partners? Would you like to share your collaborative work in a way that enhances its visibility and impact? Or are you looking for new ways to engage with your community partners and more effectively share the results of your work with a broader audience?
If so, please join us on March 24th at Trinity College to learn how you can document the story of your community-based projects using digital media. Brianna Derr will show us how and why storytelling — through the use of video, podcasts, blogs or mapping – can be an effective tool for college-community partnerships. The second half of the workshop will include short presentations of on-going digital projects here at Trinity and elsewhere, and an opportunity to discuss how you might document the story of your own CLI projects. Teams of faculty and community partners are encouraged to register for the workshop.
