UWO students to discuss journey to China

10 10 2011

Telling the stories that happen outside of the classroom is important to Grace Lim and her journalism students.

“I teach students who want to be journalists. For them to be journalists, they have to do journalism,” said Lim, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh journalism instructor and editor of Beyond Classroom Walls, an online publication that highlights the excellence in teaching and learning that occurs at the University.

On Wednesday, Oct. 12 two of Lim’s former students and multimedia interns – Tom Hanaway and Kristen Manders – will have the opportunity to share their story of a three-week journey to China through a presentation, The Midwest in The Far East. Hanaway and Manders were among more than 30 math education and business/economics students who made the educational trip to China last summer.

“This is, without a doubt, one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in my life,” said Hanaway in a Behind Classroom Walls video, which was created from atop the Great Wall of China.

The Midwest in the Far East will be held at Reeve Union Theatre at 6 p.m. Oct. 12 and is open to the public. Manders and Hanaway will answer questions following their presentation. (Read more by Amanda Wimmer)
