The workshop will convey some of the comprehensive and philosophical arguments for the sake of using digital stories and digital storytelling in higher education, and that such activities will build on solid ground. It will also demonstrate that digital storytelling will serve its cause in analytically different contexts: for discovery, for teaching and learning and for the integration of knowledge inside and outside higher education, particularly for its outreach and extension work. Common denominators for the four sections will be personal development of the learner, and the formation of the identity to become more reflective, more considerate of silenced voices, and more able to seek justice and justification.
The book that we depict in the invitation describes the importance of identity development from both Western ideals of higher education as well as from modern global philosophy. Digital storytelling, is, however, a phenomenon most often used in the parts of the world that are most influenced by modern educational technology, but it is our contention that it is also a tool for convivial exchange and collaboration on a global scale.
