Program details

Digital storytelling and publication have broken down geographical boundaries and we now access stories from around the world on our mobile devices. The breakdown of the publishing gate keeping function of legacy media means that an ever increasing amount of content and stories are produced by the ‘people formerly known as the audience’. Being able to communicate using story telling techniques is becoming increasingly important in many professions. Understanding and being able to add an international dimension to your story telling makes it even more potent.

In most cases this unit is based at the Monash Prato study centre in northern Italy. The unit introduces digital storytelling and journalism in an international setting. A number of international topics are explored during a two-week intensive learning experience.

Depending on the state of international media and journalism, this unit may from time to time be located in places other than Europe, Prato and Brussels. Students will be notified if this is the case.
