This August, Emily will be teaching a one-day workshop at the Vermont Folklife Center’s Discovering Community Summer Institute at The Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
From the VFC:
Our Discovering Community Summer Institute introduces educators to the methods of ethnographic field research and the techniques of documentary media-making and digital storytelling as a means to facilitate meaningful student involvement with the communities in which they live. Working with community resources and digital media tools offers rich opportunities for personalized, student-led learning experiences. This student-directed research model facilitates the development of transferable skills such as clear and effective communication, responsible and involved citizenship, creative and practical problem solving, and informed and integrative thinking
Thank you to Trish Denton and Mary Wesley of the Vermont Folklife Center for the invitation.
