The final session on Saturday afternoon didn't slack off at all in demanding the participants' full attention. Carol Wallinger talked about cognitive apprenticeship learning theory and offered an exercise to help students practice the articulate-reflect-explore sequence by "lightning rounds" of 3-minute "what's the answer" presentations. Judy Rosenbaum raised the question of what we mean by the term "synthesis" and whether there are different types of synthesis (of law, of facts) that our students need to understand and use.
Thanks to everyone for a wonderful conference. See you next year--in Las Vegas!
