OSUN Visual Storytelling for Civic Engagement Spring 2023 Celebration
Tuesday, April 4, 20239:00 am – 11:00 am EDT/GMT-4
9 AM New York l 3 PM Vienna
OSUN is dedicated to creating meaningful learning experiences for its students, and opportunities for its faculty to explore new teaching techniques, and have their work and research reach new audiences.
An exciting initiative OSUN has supported over the past two years is the creation of faculty/student created digital case studies. These generally include a short 8-10 minute video documentary and a companion 8-10 pages written case, often created by student filmmakers working under OSUN faculty supervision. OSUN digital cases are used in classes to drive debate and discussion on key OSUN issues, including human rights, gender equity, sustainability, and civic engagement.
The OSUN Visual Storytelling for Civic Engagement team invites faculty and all members of the network community to join an online OSUN Case Symposium happening on April 4. Professors based at campuses across the globe will view and discuss videos selected from more than 70 OSUN student/faculty films and cases now available for inclusion in classes. These videos are innovative tools designed to connect student filmmakers and faculty so they can produce compelling documentaries and written cases about global issues.
Hear from faculty at Al-Quds Bard Collge, American University of Central Asia, Bard College Annandale, BRAC University, Central European University, Columbia University, and European Humanities University and see cases focused on Civic Engagement, Social Entrepreneurship, Sustainability and Climate, Human Rights, and Arts and Society.
Also hear about a brand new funding opportunity to support OSUN faculty and student filmmakers in the creation of new video or written case studies.
