Call for Proposals
The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning invites proposals for conference workshops on the benefits of variety in all aspects of teaching and learning. The Institute’s summer conference provides a forum for dedicated teachers to share innovative ideas and effective methods for cutting edge legal education. This conference will take place at Gonzaga University on June 25, 2012. The Institute invites proposals for 60-minute workshops consistent with a broad interpretation of the conference theme.
Workshops can address teaching and learning in first-year courses, upper-level courses, clinical courses, writing courses, and academic support roles. The workshops can deal with variety and innovation in learning objectives, materials, teaching methods, and assessment. Each workshop should include materials that participants can use during the workshop as well as when they return to their campuses. Workshops should be lively seminar sessions in which presenters model effective teaching methods by actively engaging the participants. Proposals with strong interactive components will be given preference.
To be considered for the conference, proposals must be limited to one page, single-spaced, and include the following:
- The title of the workshop;
- The name, address, phone number, and email address of the presenter(s); and
- A summary of the contents of the workshop, including its goals and methods.
The Institute must receive proposals by February 1, 2012. Email proposals to Barb Anderson, Program Coordinator, Institute for Law Teaching and Learning at banderson2 [at] lawschool.gonzaga.edu.
