Drawing from the history, theory, and practice of documentary filmmaking, the goal of this class is to present an integrative approach to digital narrative production that gives equal weight to content, theory, and technological skill. While the focus will be on documenting experiential knowledge, the skills learned in this class will be transferrable to contexts related to work across disciplines and in the professions. Digital narratives are used as teaching tools in education, social justice, and health and human services, for marketing in business and literary studies, and in professional and citizen journalism. They can be used to explore or educate others on important social issues or to represent personal stories. This interdisciplinary course is designed especially for adult students in the UWW program. For some UWW students, digital narrative production can be used to better understand and demonstrate their prior experiential learning in order to complement and enhance their prior learning portfolio.
