Description

Since beginning a digital gallery exhibit program in 2011, the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa Schusterman Library has utilized digital storytelling to enhance both formal and informal student learning by employing students in the creation of exhibits. Throughout the process of planning and designing digital gallery displays, students engage in information literacy and visual literacy skills by creating a tangible project that is later incorporated into a larger exhibit hosted in the library’s Arts and Information Gallery. In addition, the library has found that these exhibits foster meaningful and diverse discussions across campus and provide an instruction framework that is adaptable to many environments. This presentation will explore how the Schusterman Library has implemented digital storytelling into graduate assistantships, internships, and student coursework to support specific information literacy skills and course objectives. Furthermore, attendees will participate in activities reinforcing skills required of digital storytelling and exhibit design.
