Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scholarly digital storytelling combines academic research and digital skills to communicate scholarly work within and beyond the classroom. This article presents three case studies that demonstrate efforts to integrate scholarly digital storytelling across disciplines, geographic locations, and teaching contexts. The case studies originate in the U.S., Northern Ireland, and Norway, and represent learning across multiple disciplines, including history, higher education, geography, and biology. The article explores the potential for scholarly digital storytelling, when carefully planned, scaffolded, and implemented, to engage students in authentic learning, teaching students to think deeply and creatively about disciplinary content while creating sharable digital products.
