Saturday's sessions included my presentation on syllabus construction, focusing on tone and pedagogical impact of syllabus design. The next morning session offered a discussion of learning style theory and its application to legal education; panelists were Debra Cohen, Southern New England; Janice Kosel, Golden Gate; and Eric DeGroff, Regent. Sophie Sparrow, Franklin Pierce, led off the afternoon sessions with a presentation on building a positive classroom environment, including how to create a comfortable learning environment for active learning techniques such as group exercises and role play. After a long and collegial break for ice cream, the day concluded with a discussion of ideas to take home from the conference and a hearty thanks to Gail Hammer, Eric Lustig, and Barb Glesner Fines for their hard work in putting together the conference and to Suffolk University School of Law for hosting the event.
