Scholarship alert: "Podcasts, PowerPoint, and Pedagogy: Using Technology to Teach the Part-Time Student"
By Professor Joyce Saltalamachia of New York Law School and published at 53 N.Y.L. Sch. L. Rev. 893 (2008/09). From the abstract:
This essay will explore the use of various types of technology in order to assist part-time first-year law students in a required core course. The technologies employed included audio, visual, and web-based products, and each item was designed to be used both in-class and for out-of-class review purposes. In the two classes involved in the study, nearly all the students were employed full-time and attended law school in the evenings after work, and all had limited time for class preparation and exam study. The survey results at the end of this essay demonstrate that these students overwhelmingly utilized the additional technological tools and considered them valuable resources for their legal education.
I am the scholarship dude.
