That will touch your heart
We've partnered with various organisations located in Myanmar and Thailand to create a unique online learning experience for the students. Throughout the course, our students are trained and equipped to conduct a 6 weeks Online Digital Storytelling Workshop with our partner organisations to create stories from the learners in Myanmar and Thailand. Through this experience, the course hopes to bring a much needed human connection in this world.
These are a selection of stories that were produced in the Fall Semester of 2020 by our students and learners in Myanmar.
