Digital Storytelling Summer School in East London

The Storytelling Research Team will be delivering a two-day Digital Storytelling workshop in our London campus on the 6th and the 7th of August as part of the East Education Summer School at Here East in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

This workshop is also the final event of the EOOL project and aims to showcase the methodology applied in this EU funded project to explore its potential in other formal and non-formal education contexts.
