On Friday, November 18, from 11 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., New York Law School's Professor Kris Franklin (recently featured in this Blog's "spotlight")is hosting another annual regional Academic Support Get-Together soon.
"If everyone does the homework assignment," she suggests, "we should be well-prepared to compare notes about how we would diagnose and discuss the work of two 'sample students' on a criminal law exam. This will help us learn from both our similarities and our differences, and will show how the differences in our program designs might change our ways of working with students."
Presenters will also cover at least three other discussion topics:
● Professor Dionne Koller (at left) (University of Maryland School of Law) will share materials and lead a discussion on “Training and Using Teaching Fellows.”
● Director Mark Padin (Pace Law School) will help frame a discussion on whether our programs are adequately and uniquely serving students of color.
There’s still time to add discussion topics!
Professor Franklin writes, "Though one of the great benefits of the workshop is its intimacy, we do want to encourage everyone who can possibly participate to come. All the cool kids will be there."
Editorial note: (And there are usually brownies.)
I plan to attend ... how about you?
