"We uploaded more than 40 videos on pedagogy and legal education. The videos come from the Igniting Law Teaching conference, hosted at American University Washington College of Law, and from the AALS 2015 Clinical Conference. Each less than 10 minutes long, they address many of the topics that law school professors and administrators currently are focusing on, such as assessment, learning outcomes, curricula mapping, reflection and adding experiential learning to doctrinal classes.
Michele Pistone (Villanova) and Michael B. Horn (Entangled Solutions and Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation) recently published, Disrupting Law School: How disruptive innovation will revolutionize the legal world.
Michele's blog post, Disruption Will Not Stop at the Law School Door and Michael's post, Disruption Looms for Law Schools, provide an overview of the paper's main points -- how changes in the practice of law, in higher education and in the regulatory landscape are combining to create a challenging environment for law schools. Disrupting Law Schools helps law schools prepare for and respond to the potential disruption.
