Our Initiative in the Academic Sector
Are you an academic program director in a communication or business school? Are you an executive director of a forward-thinking continuing education program? Great! Learn how you can unleash the power of visual storytelling to advance your students’ careers and drive community innovation!
VSI team has taught a full-semester Visual Storytelling Xperience (VSX) at The Idea Center at Miami Dade College – one of the hottest innovation hubs in Miami. Miami-Dade College is the largest university in the US, boasting 165,000 students! VSX is an intensive course in visual storytelling, built around your product or service.
With our Visual Storytelling Xperience course, students bring their passion project to the class. Based on their project, they will learn how to craft a compelling business story starring the customer as the hero (STORY MAKING), how to visualize their story with video, 360 video and other visual formats (STORY VISUALIZING), and finally how to effectively distribute their visual stories across their customer buying journey (STORY TELLING).
But it’s much more than that: It’s an experience. Our results-oriented experiential learning approach provides a deep dive into contemporary visual storytelling best practices. Our approach features practical lessons, frequent guests, hands-on exercises, group activities, peer learning, networking opportunities, project-based learning and much more.
