Visual Storytelling


Create relevant and engaging visual narratives that clearly

communicate the scope and value of current research

in the College of Innovation and Design at Boise State.


Visual Narrative, Creative Writing, Image Design, Camera Controls, Image Editing, Digital Asset Management, Project Management Skills, Time Lapse Photography


Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone can isolate the core narrative that others find interesting, tease out its supporting details, and create and edit the visual and written materials needed to effectively tell that story. Using a project based approach, students in this course will develop the skills needed to tell the stories of their peers involved in original research at Boise State University as well as their own.
