Sarah Shannon panel presentation

The panel was titled, "Breaking Ground: Grassroots Engagement Connecting the University and Incarcerated Communities" and featured three educational initiatives working within the UGA community and inside Georgia jails and prisons. Also on the panel were Dr. Caroline Young from the UGA English Department, who teaches at Whitworth Prison in Hartwell, GA, and undergraduate students Austin Joshua and Evan Johnson from the Athens Prison Tutorial program. Dr. Shannon and fellow panelists discussed the challenges of bringing college students and faculty into non-traditional learning environments and shared the experiences, learning outcomes, and rewards of bringing these communities together. Dr. Shannon plans to teach her Inside-Out course (SOCI 4470S) again this spring.
