ThreeSixty Journalism hosted its first-ever Digital Audio Storytelling Camp on the campus of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. This camp was a partnership with the YWCA’s Girls Inc. Eureka! program. Led by Communication and Journalism Assistant Professor Dr. Peter Gregg, students had the opportunity to take a personal essay, written at ThreeSixty’s College Essay Boot Camp, and turn it into a digital audio story.
Throughout the week, students learned what a digital audio story is (audiobooks, podcasts, radio dramas, etc.), how to create their own sound effects, and how to edit their digital projects. They worked in the COJO Media Lab, as well as the University of St. Thomas TV Studio, using professional recording and editing equipment. According to Dr. Gregg, students did about a half-semester’s worth of college-level work in just five days.
At the end of the week, students had the opportunity to share their completed projects with their families, peers, and ThreeSixty staff. You can listen to those projects here.
