The Intercultural Digital Storytelling Project #IDSP is excited to be hosting a series of community-initiated conversations this Fall term. #IDSP was launched two years ago in 2014 as an experiment in digital storytelling by TESOL-TFL Assistant Professor and Chair of the Intercultural Competence Committee, Dr. Netta Avineri, and DLC director, Bob Cole.
We invite Institute community members to participate in one or more of the #nestedstories events – participation in all of them is not required. Each session will be independent, but all are connected to the others through the IDSP pillars: immersive learning, inductive research, peer mentorship, reflection, & digital media.
#IDSP17 Happening #1
Dr. Netta Avineri “Building Community Partnerships One Story at a Time”
Thursday, September 29, 2016
12:15 – 1:45pm
DLC Design Space, McGowan 001 / 420 Calle Principal
So much of what we do at Middlebury Institute involves mutually beneficial partnerships with local and global communities. In this opening session we will explore the concept of “nested interculturality” and discover how individual and communal storytelling can play a key role in the ongoing creation of these partnerships. Participants will explore various modes of storytelling that they can then use in their personal and professional lives.
