About the webinar
Digital storytelling is a process that, when produced effectively, can facilitate knowledge mobilization to stakeholders by illustrating complex concepts in a clear and appealing way. A well-crafted narrative and video is an excellent medium to attract attention to your research, is a good starting point for a shared understanding which can facilitate future dialogue, and has the potential to change the way we engage beyond academia. In this webinar you will be introduced to the concepts and how-to of making a fun, creative, to-the-point, and easily accessible digital story that you can add to your knowledge mobilization toolbox. You will leave the session inspired to start your own digital story.
