Description

Flipped classrooms, hybrid classrooms, face-to-face learning. PowerPoints, Prezis, whiteboards. Handouts, mind maps, flash cards. Audio, video, print. There are so many options and decisions points today for how to best present information to students. This session will offer a survey of recommended methods for educational instruments and apply them to the legal research context. The speaker will show how the same legal research topic could be presented in several different ways to students, highlighting the pros and cons of each methodology. Participants will then discuss ways in which they have presented legal research topics to students in the past and brainstorm how they might repackage that information in a different context, whether their goal is to make their in-class presentation more interactive, convert a face-to-face lecture or activity to an online context, or something else entirely.
