UW grad students: apply now for Storytelling Fellows

Are you a graduate student looking to network across programs? Engaged in academic or professional work that you wish you could communicate to a broader audience? Interested in building your resume while learning how to tell compelling stories about meaningful topics?

If YES: the UW Libraries invites you to apply for Storytelling Fellows, an innovative, hands-on program designed to highlight the interests and accomplishments of UW graduate students, using digital-storytelling skills and technologies.

Storytelling Fellows
·         A Free Online Skill-Building Program for Graduate Students
·         Sponsored by the Research Commons & Libraries Instructional Design Team
·         10/18-11/8 with two synchronous online sessions on 10/21 and 11/4 (9:30am-12:00pm)

What is Storytelling Fellows?
It is a totally free three-week online program that will take approximately 10 accepted fellows through the start-to-finish process of envisioning and creating a digital-storytelling video suitable for an online portfolio, professional presentation, or academic project. Fellows will meet for two mandatory synchronous online sessions in order to discuss project ideas and gain insight into the art of storytelling, using the cloud-based program WeVideo.

Do I need to have any prior experience?
Nope! No previous experience with digital storytelling or WeVideo is required or needed. An online Canvas-based course will be provided to bring you up to speed on the finer points of digital storytelling.

When does the Fellows program run?
The online Canvas course opens 10/18 and closes 11/8. The two synchronous online sessions are on Saturday, 10/21, from 9:30am-12:00pm and Saturday, 11/4, from 9:30am-12:00pm. Preference will be given to those who can attend both of the synchronous sessions.

Where do I find detailed information about the workshop’s requirements?
Take a look at the syllabus.

How do I sign up?
Fill out this survey by no later than 10/13. We will cap the workshop at 10 people, so it’s best to sign up soon.
