Project Summary

This project seeks to develop and enhance teaching and learning between theatre and film with a focus on experiential and technological approaches to teaching the art of storytelling. Specifically, the project aims to conduct curriculum mapping activities to evaluate and find ways to collaborate through disciplinary areas in theatre and film with an objective to 1) develop digital educational tools that explore experiential approaches to storytelling that create interdisciplinary collaborations 2) create an online resource that incorporates digital technologies (CLAS, 360 video, blogs) and peer evaluation tools that can be used in current teaching across the department, 3) enhance teaching methods and revise curriculum in light of broad changes to digital storytelling, and finally 4) create a web based student showcase for student fiction and nonfiction work to share with the community at UBC and beyond.
