In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept of transmedia storytelling, the theoretical frameworks that make it a 21st-century learning tool, and ideas for how transmedia can be integrated across the curriculum, Participants will also have time to play with a variety of transmedia projects and explore ways in which they can integrate transmedia into their own practices.
