Welcome to all participants. Please join us in the closed facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/222040097996690/ to introduce yourself and briefly explain your interest in this course, what your past experience is in digital storytelling and what you hope to take away from this course.
I am keen to meet you and happy to be one of the facilitators on this course. I live in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape of South Africa and teach in the Department of Architectual Technology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. Our campus is on the foreshore in Cape Town, so I have the best of both worlds: semi-rural winelands and bustling city life! Together with Daniela Gachago, I have run a number of digital storytelling projects at different academic levels and with different educational focii, in our department. We have done some interesting research on how digital storytelling can enhance learning and what other advantages it has for self-awareness, professional identity and unlocking indigenous knowledge, to name but a few. I look forward to seeing you in the forum here, the live online meetings and the facebook group.
Thank you for such a great welcome. I’m looking forward to learning from you and Daniela. I like words A LOT, and my imagination runs wild when I read or listen to people tell a story. I am not a visual person and I hope I will have a breakthrough here.
