Get in touch with DHIL
Propose a digital research project – deadline January 15th!
This Intermediate Podcasting workshop is the first workshop of the new year hosted by SFU Research Commons and the Digital Humanities Innovation Lab and follows the successful introductory workshop on Podcasting for Scholarly Communication held in the fall. Led by Hannah McGregor (Assistant Professor, Publishing @ SFU), this workshop will move beyond the basics of recording and editing audio to discuss creating an audio brand, publishing your podcast, and social media engagement. Activities will include building episodes from interviews, using music and sound effects to create a distinct audio palette, and using different platforms to maximize your online reach. Participants are encouraged to bring samples of audio they’re already planning to work with. Attendance is limited to 21 participants, so please register early to reserve your place.
Whether you use Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, or WordPress, how you share your stories is just as important as what you share. This workshop offers a brief introduction into the theory and practices behind digital storytelling and provides participants with the opportunity to build their own story, using Twine, open source, interactive storytelling software. Via examples and hands-on instruction, participants will leave with a better understanding of digital storytelling as a genre and a short poem of their own to publish to the web. This workshop will be led by Dr. David Gaertner (Assistant Professor, UBC First Nations & Indigenous Studies Program) and will feature research presentations by Dr. Gaertner and Simone Hausknecht (PhD student. SFU Education). The workshop will be held at SFU’s downtown Harbour Centre campus, and is open to graduate students, faculty, and staff at SFU, UVic, and UBC. Participation is free, but registration is required.
