So proud of these superhero’s!

The Hero’s Journey New Student Orientation Digital Storytelling and 3D Design Interactive Project is an ongoing, persistent engagement experience to inform and inspire new students to attend Peninsula College on campus and online.

Digital Storytelling students design, build, and institute components of The Hero’s Journey. The continual goal of the project is to build an innovative marketing space and introduction to the college through an adventure filled with information, helpful resources, encouragement, and inclusive experiences.

Our next class start Spring term with Media 224 – Digital Storytelling which is taught online and on campus!

Digital Storytelling Students become mentors after the hero's journey

The 12 Steps of The Hero’s Journey:

The Hero’s Journey – Step 1 – Ordinary World – This step refers to the hero’s normal life at the start of the story, before the adventure begins.

The Hero’s Journey Step 2 – Call to Adventure – The hero is faced with something that makes them begin their adventure. This might be a problem or a challenge they need to overcome.

The Hero’s Journey Step 3 – Refusal of the Call – The hero attempts to refuse the adventure because they are afraid.

The Hero’s Journey Step 4 – Meeting with the Mentor – The hero encounters someone who can give them advice and ready them for the journey ahead.

The Hero’s Journey Step 5 – Crossing the First Threshold – The hero leaves their ordinary world for the first time and crosses the threshold into adventure in the extraordinary world.

The Hero’s Journey Step 6 -Tests, Allies, and Enemies – The hero learns the rules of their new world. During this time, they endure tests of strength of will, meets friends, and comes face to face with foes.

The Hero’s Journey Step 7 – Adaptation and Approach – Setbacks occur, sometimes causing the hero to try a new approach and adopt new ideas.

The Hero’s Journey Step 8 – Ordeal – The hero experiences a major hurdle or obstacle, such as a life or death crisis.

The Hero’s Journey Step 9 – Reward – After surviving death, the hero earns their reward or accomplishes their goal.

The Hero’s Journey Step 10 – The Road Back – The hero begins their journey back to their ordinary life.

The Hero’s Journey Step 11 – The Resurrection Hero – The hero faces a final test where everything is at stake and they must use everything they have learned.

The Hero’s Journey Step 12 – Return with Elixir – The hero brings their knowledge or the “elixir” back to the ordinary world, where they apply it to help all who remain there.
