Digital Stories | Alumni Info
"Everyone has many stories to tell. The ritual of sharing insights about life can be immensely valuable both to those who speak and those who bear witness. People who believe they are mundane, uninteresting, or unmemorable possess beneath this mask a vivid, complex, and rich body of stories just waiting to be told."
Digital Storytelling is a short form of digital media production that allows everyday people to share aspects of their life story. At IFSA-Butler, we've engaged our alumni and current students in this process as a means for them to explore their engagement in their host cultures and communities. It has also proved a wonderful outlet in which we can more richly communicate the value of study abroad to audiences worldwide, especially students who may be wondering if an international experience is worth the time and effort. We invite you to connect with our students through the humor, sincerity and true personality displayed in the stories below.
