Head and Heart: The Art and Science of Digital Storytelling

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

  • Voltaire Santos Miran

Wednesday 5th April, 2017

9:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of communication in the world. Modern science has shown that stories affect us deeply neurologically and psychologically— helping us to solve problems, experience pleasure, provide pattern and order, and assimilate into society. In short, humans are wired for story.

Storytelling also plays a significant role in helping institutions of higher education to reveal and build their brand. As we recruit students or faculty, nurture relationships with alumni and donors, and raise awareness and esteem in the community and among our peers, we tell our stories in order to educate, inspire, engage, and move people to action.

Join Voltaire, mStoner's co-founder and CEO, for this workshop as he explores the art and science of storytelling. You'll learn about the essential components of a great story and principles for using storytelling to build your brand, as well as techniques for becoming a masterful storyteller.
