About this book

This book broadens the scope and impact of digital storytelling in higher education. It outlines how to teach, research and build communities in tertiary institutions through the particular form of audio-visual communication known as digital storytelling by developing relationships across professions, workplaces and civil society. The book is framed within the context of ‘The Four Scholarships’ developed by the Carnegie Foundation for the advancement and redefining of teaching, including the scholarships of discovery, integration, application, and teaching and learning. Across four sections, this volume considers the potential of digital storytelling to improve, enhance and expand teaching, learning, research, and interactions with society. Written by an international range of academics, researchers and practitioners, from disciplines spanning medicine, anthropology, education, social work, film and media studies, rhetoric and the humanities, the book demonstrates the variety of ways in which digital storytelling offers solutions to key challenges within higher education for students, academics and citizens. It will be compelling reading for students and researchers working in education and sociology.

Reviews

“This is a very timely and well-written book that fills a gap in the literature. It introduces the subject in profound ways and covers a wide range of state of the art methods in the field. The authors are pointing out potentials of a media-cultural form known as ‘digital storytelling’ which are relevant in all fields of higher education. The strength of this volume lies in building interdisciplinary bridges between basic research and practical applications as well as between transformatory learning, traditions of Bildung and civic engagement. Moreover, the book encourages deep reflection and meaningful learning in times of ‘managerialism’ and widespread narrow conceptions of education as output. Essential and enlightening reading for students and researchers dealing with higher education.” (Theo Hug, Professor of Educational Sciences, University of Innsbruck, Austria)

“This volume comprises original, reflexive articles by key voices in digital storytelling. The collection demonstrates the extraordinary flexibility and reach of the form, across the globe and across educational contexts. Cementing the importance of digital storytelling as a tool for citizenship, this anthology is impressive and thoroughly engaging. A must-read for anyone interested in the development of digital storytelling for pedagogy as well as for those who are now adapting digital storytelling to their own particular educational contexts.” (Nancy Thumim, Lecturer in Media and Communication, University of Leeds, UK)
