The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning has just posted the latest issue of The Law Teacher on its website. This issue contains several articles on innovative teaching techniques. It also announces ILTL's 2014 conferences:
1. Assessment Across the Curriculum, Saturday, April 5, 2014 at University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
"WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This conference is for all law faculty (full-time and adjunct) who
want to learn about best practices for course-level assessment of student learning."
2. What the Best Law Teachers Do, June 25-27, 2014 at Northwestern University Law School.
"Published by Harvard University Press, What the Best Law Teachers Do introduces readers to twenty-six professors from law schools across the United States, featuring close-to-the-ground accounts of exceptional educators in action. Join us to interact with these instructors and learn more about their passion and creativity in the classroom and beyond."
A few days ago, one of my co-bloggers lamented the fact that many law teachers don't read about teaching and learning. (here) Reading The Law Teacher is an easy way to keep up with the latest in law teaching and learning scholarship. Also, What the Best Law Teachers Do (2013) is a comprehensive book on best practices in legal education. Finally, ILTL's conferences provide an excellent entry into new teaching methods.
