Data storytelling 101 [WEBJUNCTION]

Data storytelling 101 [WEBJUNCTION]

From Webjunction: 

Storytelling is a vital strategy for communicating impact and justifying future investments. Powerful and effective stories allow us to create a roadmap that weaves together information and emotion. This webinar will provide an orientation to storytelling that centers cultural humility while leveraging storytelling dynamics, including how to practice and refine an impactful story with a live audience. Participants will learn the techniques of story construction based on three classic narrative structures, with roots in folklore and narratology, and explore examples of data stories told by and about libraries. This is an opportunity to build confidence in the ability to recognize and craft a meaningful and memorable story.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand narrative structures
  • Gain confidence in taking risks to develop library data as a story
  • Develop skills for practicing stories with audiences
  • Recognize and increase “retellability” of stories
