Call for AALS Speaker/Participants: Online & Hybrid Learning Pedagogy Best Practices and Development of Standards
The most unique session format at the AALS Annual Meeting, discussion group programs provide an opportunity for a small group of invited participants to engage in a focused discussion on a specific topic. If you are interested in participating, please submit an abstract by August 23rd, 2019.
This AALS Discussion Group will review the existing Model Standards for online law school programs and develop updated standards and best practices. This Discussion Group requests the submission of Discussion White Papers based on evolving and improving aspects of the Model Standards for online programs that are available under the “Online & Hybrid Learning Pedagogy Model Standards Development” information. We will examine, discuss and update the 2015 Model Standards, and discuss how these standards might be deployed, and who might be responsible for applying the standards as in an advisory manner or as an accreditor. As time allows, we will also discuss updating the 2015 Recommended Practices and examine how schools may propel their programs toward these loftier goals.
