I. First LegalED Conference – Igniting Law Teaching: CALL FOR TALKS
LegalED, with the generous support of American University, Washington College of Law and its Pence Law Library, is organizing a one-day conference about Legal Education and Pedagogy, and we would like to invite members to participate. The conference, part of WCL’s Founders Program, is Friday, April 4, 2014 at Washington College of Law, in Washington D.C.
Recognizing that many professors are not trained to teach in this new way, this conference will gather leading law school educators together for a conference about law school pedagogy. Each presentation will be videotaped and uploaded to LegalED for professors around the country and the world to watch at their own pace. Instead of having panels of speakers, the conference will be structured like a TED conference.
The goal of the conference is to create a collection of short, 10-minute videos, on law school-related pedagogy that will inspire innovation and experimentation by law professors around the country and the world to bring more active learning and practical skills training into the law school curriculum. The videos will be available for viewing by the larger academic community on LegalED.
Interested in presenting at the conference?
