With support from our 2014 Presidential Academic Innovation Award, we are using oral history interviewing in English, History, and Sociology classes to promote student engagement, preserve regional history, and create new connections between UNG and the broader northeastern Georgia community. At this brown bag session, we will discuss the goals, methods, and results of our efforts.

This undergraduate research project is an example of best practices in high-impact education.  This presentation is part of the High-Impact Practices Academy. The event is part of the CURCA and CTLL series.
