The 2008 regional conference of the New England Consortium of Legal Writing Teachers (NECLWT) will take place on Monday, December 1, 2008, at Suffolk Law School, located at 120 Tremont Street in the heart of downtown Boston.
The focus of the conference is “Teaching Through Technology.” The morning program will feature three interactive presentations exploring innovative methods for teaching legal writing and research through the use of Wikis, Clickers, and Podcasts. Each presentation will not only offer the perspective of legal writing and research professors who have incorporated these methods into their classroom, but it will also provide attendees with hands-on tutorials for using the various forms of technology.
A lunchtime presentation, “The Pedagogy of Teaching Through Technology,” features Andrew Beckerman-Rodau, Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Intellectual Property Law Concentration at Suffolk University Law School. He has been at the forefront of the movement to incorporate technology in teaching.
The registration deadline is Friday, November 17, 2008. Send any questions about the conference to Sabrina DeFabritiis, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
