Professor Charles Rose of Stetson Law School writes to invite readers to a training skills program on Jan. 3, 2008. Professor Rose describes the program as follows:
If you are attending AALS in New York this New Year we would love to see you at the reception Stetson is hosting at the Tuscan Square Restaurant on 16 W. 51st Street on January 3rd beginning at 5 P.M. and ending at 7 P.M. Please join us for good food, excellent libations and a brief discussion about the future of skills training in the academy. As part of the reception we will showcase our upcoming Training Skills Program (TSP) set for 21 through 23 May 2008 on our lovely Gulfport Campus, and unveil our pre-trial competition.
Stetson's Training Skills Program will bring together experts in skills training, adult education and communication to provide a training opportunity for full time and adjunct professors that teach skills. All attendees will receive a Stetson Certificate of Excellence upon completion of the program. Attendees will work one on one with students in a stress free environment with immediate feedback on their performance and substantive critiques that increase their teaching effectiveness. They will then be given an opportunity to apply the lessons learned. Time will also be devoted to the discussion of Skills pedagogy and Skills related scholarship. Each attendee will get access to Stetson's Online Advocacy Resource Center and will be given a bound copy of the Stetson's Advocacy Teaching Manual, an annual publication that will capture the wisdom of our peers in a format that raises the bar for all of us.
Now is an exciting time for those of us in the Academy that are committed to quality skills instruction that is part and parcel of a vibrant doctrinal environment. Stetson University College of Law, with the incredible support of Dean Darby Dickerson, is developing in fact what has long existed in thought, a vibrant academic network of skills professors supporting, mentoring and encouraging one another. With that goal in mind we wish to invite you to attend our reception on January 3rd.
Once again, we have reserved a room at
Tuscan Square Restaurant
16 W. 51st Street
Time: 5 -7 PM.
If you have any questions you can reach me at the Marriot on Times Square (I arrive on the 2nd) or by phone at 813-924-4717.
I hope to see as many of you as possible there. Thanks and best wishes for a Wonderful Year!
