CERTIFY Project: Digital Storytelling training at Loughborough University
20 participants from 7 European Countries will be involved in the first training mobility of the CERTIFY Project from Monday the 16th of December to Friday the 20th.
Dr Antonia Liguori (Lecturer in Applied Storytelling at Loughborough University and PI on the project) and Dr Lyndsey Bakewell (Lecturer in Drama and Co-I from De Montfort University) will facilitate a 5-day Digital Storytelling training workshop aimed at sharing this creative practice with two adult learners from each country involved in the project.
The CERTIFY project seeks to help individuals wanting to work in the Cultural and Creative sectors, considered to be a sector for investment by the European Commission, by developing and testing a new methodology based on digital tools for people to identify and recognise their transversal skills, as identified in the 2020 strategy.
All participants will be involved in another training activity in May so to be able to then deliver themselves Digital Storytelling workshops in their own country.
The digital stories produced will be included in a collection of open educational resources and new intellectual outputs for adult education.
