The Spanish Language Program: Digital Storytelling

The Spanish Language Program's Digital Storytelling Project pairs students concurrently enrolled in any 100-level Spanlang course with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's lived experiences. Students interested in this program enroll in Spanlang 199SL, Directed Service Learning, earning credit for a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center) while gaining valuable insights into the important contributions and rich life experiences of Stanford workers. Workers, in turn, co-create digital stories to share with their families or to feature on this page, according to each worker's individual preference.

For further information, contact the instructor, Spanish Language Program Coordinator, alimiano [at] (Ali Miano).
