DIGITAL STORYTELLING FOR COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP:  This course will guide students through the process of creating a digital story and also give them the tools to facilitate digital storytelling workshops themselves. Digital stories are short-format videos in which the creator narrates a story from their own life; they are often connected to broader themes and can be used to tell the story of a person, organization, community, or movement. Digital storytelling uses simple digital technology, such as cell phone photography and audio recording, and user-friendly, free video editing software. 

Take a look at some DIGITAL STORY VIDEO examples.

No previous digital video or photography experience is necessary. In this course, students will create one 3-5 minute digital story and  develop a sample curriculum for facilitating a workshop in a community or organization of their choice.

Students need to have access to a laptop during each of the class sessions and for homework assignments in-between classes. Either a Mac or PC will work.

This Course is eligible for 1-credit of elective credit in the Master of Professional Studies in Community Leadership upon approval of the Graduate Program Director. To transfer credit upon completion of course contact GPD Sally Scott at

This course is not limited to UMBC students and is open to the general public.
