Presentation Abstract: Digital storytelling can be a powerful tool for improving teaching and learning regardless of the subject

matter or discipline. While providing students with a forum in which to tell their stories whether these are about personal struggles

and achievements, a specific text or concept, or a combination of these digital storytelling also enables students to make the

abstract concrete, to make the complex more readily understood, and to do so while enhancing their skills in rhetoric, literacy, and

critical thinking. This presentation will provide an overview of two projects that are part of Seton Hall Universitys digital

storytelling initiative. Both projects highlight the ways digital stories can be used to help students enter into conversations with

and understand complex texts and ideas. Examples of digital stories created by students from both projects will be shared, and an

overview of the processes involved will be provided.

Using a combination of technology and situated learning, students can develop skills, knowledge and ways of

thinking necessary for becoming effective leaders in organizations and communities. Strategic Management and Governance is a graduate

course in the Masters of Public Administration (MPA) program at Seton Hall University that stresses the development of managerial and

analytical skills as well as the ethical and professional values necessary to take on leadership roles in our civil society. One goal

of this course is to show how different social actors within a political system approach problems differently based on the needs of

their organization and the complex social processes in the community. After attending training sessions in Google Sketchup, student

teams were given a case study involving a vacant and unused parcel of land along with a description of the organization they were

representing. Working in teams, students created a detailed development plan that represented not only the needs and interests of the

role they were playing, but community concerns as well. Students presented their final proposals, substantiating their arguments and

designs with actual facts and data gained from research. This session will cover the design, assessment and support strategies used to

ensure the resulting successful learning outcomes.
