***This workshop has reached capacity.***
Target Audience: Librarians who teach their own legal research course
1) Participants will be able to incorporate teaching pedagogy into the design and execution of a legal research course.
2) Participants will be able to create a learning environment that maximizes student learning.
Experienced teachers will lead interactive sessions on learning styles, course and class design, creating the right classroom environment, lecturing well (including using class discussion effectively), designing and executing in-class activities, assessment of students, the role of technology in teaching, and ongoing improvement of teaching skills and style. Over the lunch break, each speaker will lead a roundtable on a teaching topic suggested by participants.
Pre-workshop readings and activities will be assigned. Because the sessions build on content presented throughout the day, participants should plan on attending the entire workshop.
