Experiential Learning and Digital Storytelling

Dr. Meg Rincker, Assistant Professor of Political Science will share her story on how Experiential Learning and Digital Storytelling has enhanced the learning experience for her students enrolled in POL 433 EXL – International Organization: Model United Nations. Dr. Rincker’s students are provided with practical experiences as a student-diplomat as they prepare to participate in the American Model United Nations Conference. The class experimented with utilizing Digital Storytelling as an activity for students to demonstrate what they learned while researching their position papers. Digital Storytelling is a multimedia production with little boundaries. The process of creating the story provides students with opportunities to present their understanding of a given topic in a creative and reflective way.  The elements of the story can be told using video, animation, stills, audio or any other form of digital media.
