What is the value of interdisciplinary studies? What do students gain through experiential learning? In this forum, English Instructor Rachel Mines will use Langara’s Writing Lives Project as a learning model that can potentially be adapted to other courses and programs. 

Writing Lives: The Holocaust Memoir Project is a two-semester project. Students learn about the history of the Holocaust in preparation for interviewing and writing the memoirs of local Holocaust survivors. Research ethics, interview strategies, and memoir writing are some of the hands-on skills students are learning in the classroom and out in the community. Is this model useful for students? Join the discussion.
