The Digital Storytelling Class will not be offered in 2020. Stay tuned for future course dates!
In 2014 & 2016 Sage Hill Writing partnered with the Interdisciplinary Centre for Culture and Creativity (ICCC, University of Saskatchewan) to offer a course in Digital Storytelling. This is an emerging format where stories are told through interactive scenarios, social computing, hypertexts, narrative computer games, digital films, using a number of media and multimedia formats. Student projects made use of tools such as digital cameras and sound recorders, video, sound, images, html, social media such as Twitter, YouTube, podcast, blogs, fan art/fiction, and narrative computer games, etc.
Based in the Digital Research Centre at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, SK, students created their digital narratives with new media artist Ellen Moffat, with assistance from new media professor, Allison Muri, as well as guest speakers. Participants developed storytelling techniques and learned how to employ them through digital technologies, to gain a deeper sense of how new media affects ideas of narrative and storytelling.
