Jean Whitney has posted a new portfolio on Advanced Advocacy: Legislative Policy on the Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers Website. The portfolio includes a course description, teaching methods, recommendations, outcomes, and course materials.
Professor Whitney also summarizes her teaching philosophy: "I believe that students learn best when they understand the context and purpose of their learning. Guided simulation experiences give students opportunities to test their knowledge and skills by applying concepts and theories in context and observing the consequences and to develop professional skills and values through interactions with peers and senior colleagues. Experiential learning is essential to preparing students to be competent, skilled, ethical, and mindful practitioners of law."
In sum, this is another wonderful ETL portfolio, which can serve as an example of how to adopt new teaching methods.
