Organizational storytelling can be a powerful learning approach, but it suffers from many obstacles. Storytellers often lack skill in developing a cohesive narrative and delivery. Often the relatability of the narrative misses the mark. Content, relevancy, and usefulness should always be paramount and the current quality of many training-related videos is mediocre at best

In this session you will learn how collective digital storytelling (CDS) combines methodologies of organization development, digital video capture, and collective/systemic storytelling to create a platform that is extremely engaging to learners. You will explore how CDS puts learners in more active positions so that they are storytellers as well as story-receivers. You will discover how peer-to-peer communication enables the learners to become the teachers and vice-versa. You will leave this session understanding how CDS provides a new and energizing way to use video as part of eLearning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The definition and description of collective digital storytelling (CDS) and an overview of the process
  • How to augment video capture with organization development approaches to generate richer and more meaningful content
  • Synthesis methods used to turn independent story lines into a cohesive narrative that reflects adult learning needs
  • Uses and applications for collective digital storytelling (CDS)

Intermediate and advanced developers, project managers, and managers.
