Gerry Hess has written an excellent post about improving one's teaching skills on the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning Idea of the Month page. My favorite suggestions:
1. "Explore the vast literature about law teaching and learning. Read books, articles, newsletters, and blogs about law teaching and learning. View videos and websites devoted to legal pedagogy."
2. "Systematically record our reflections on our teaching by making notes after each class or keeping a teaching journal."
7. "Attend national or regional conferences on pedagogy or attend teaching workshops at our own institutions. Better yet, present a session on teaching at a conference or workshop."
While you're on the Idea of the Month page, check out the previous months' ideas.
