Digital Storytelling

Everyone has a story. Can we help you find yours?

Why did you set out on your postgraduate studies or research? What challenges have you faced? What has been the most important thing you’ve discovered? 

At the Graduate School we can help you ask these kinds of questions and put them together into a narrative that will engage people outside and inside academia in an effective and rewarding way.

Digital Storytelling is an effective tool for demonstrating impact, offers a structured way to reflect on what you’ve achieved, and will help to develop your voice and identity as a communicator.

No prior experience, or full of ideas? 

We offer one-to-one mentoring to help see your project to fruition, and we use tools and techniques that require little or no previous experience.

Short films, podcasts, photo essays, web comics… There are so many ways to tell a story online and we’re sure we haven’t thought of them all. If you’ve got an idea we’d love to hear from you and discuss whether or not we can help make it a reality.
