WSU Storytelling Festival

Fifth Annual

Storyteaching Symposium

June 13–14, 2019

Storytelling in the Digital Age

Come learn about the new wave of storytelling: audio podcasting. Participants will learn to gather and edit field audio, create and add commentary, and even add music to create short stories suitable for presentation to an audience in the context of a podcast. Every activity of the symposium will be designed to be duplicable in the classroom among students. Podcasting develops a number of skills: technology literacy, teamwork, and higher level critical thinking skills as audio is gathered, processed, edited, and commented upon.
