LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Aaron Thornburg, assistant professor of anthropology, shares his experience incorporating digital storytelling in the classroom for the next colloquium, Thursday, Apr. 10.

“Digital Storytelling in the Anthropology Classroom: Potential Problems and Pedagogical Promise” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210 at EOU. A reception with time for questions and answers will follow.

Examples of digital story projects produced by students in Thornburg’s class on Media, Self and Society will be screened.
