Abstract

I encountered a lot of new things in Argentina. I saw new sights, smelled new smells, and heard new sounds. I experienced this new place through the filter of my past experiences. I cannot explain the reason for many of the things that occurred in my new environment. This is my journey to learn more.

About the session:

Digital storytelling is a powerful tool for helping students bring their study abroad experience full circle. The process of creating a digital story leads students to reflect more deeply on their time abroad as they brainstorm, create storyboards, write scripts, and finally produce their stories.

Inspired by the work of the Center for Digital Storytelling and the Digital Storytelling Working Group, Western Oregon University's Office of Study Abroad and International Exchanges, in collaboration with WOU's Writing Center, has implemented digital storytelling as one of the requirements for the Study Abroad Capstone Project.
