Using Simulations to Enhance International Law Teaching

On Thursday, March 26 at 3 pm, the Teaching International Law Interest Group (TILIG) of ASIL will be holding a program on "Using Simulations to Enhance International Law Teaching" as part of the ASIL Annual Meetings at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, DC.  Professors Michael Sharf (Case Western), Tom McDonnell (Pace) and Cindy Buys (SIU) will lead the discussion.  Other members of the group are invited to share examples of simulations they use in their teaching of various international law topics. 

In preparing for this program, I welcome ideas and suggestions from international law professors who cannot attend about why and how they use simulations in their own teaching.  You may comment on this blog about the educational benefits (and possible pitfalls) of using simulations, or you are welcome to email me directly with your ideas and examples.  The TILIG hopes to compile some resources on the topic that it can then share with interested international law professors.
