Technical Level: Low
This presentation will include several speakers who participated in CALI’s Legal Education Podcasting Project this past spring. Some of the faculty recorded their class lectures and others created weekly summaries for their students.
One of the things that will be explored is the connection between podcasts, and more active learning experiences. We will also pose questions, and have a discussion about the following topics:
What are the benefits of the in the classroom, live lecture or discussion, class expereince for our students, and are we gradually disaggregating the law school teaching system by providing other ways to learn and experience law school classes.
Is this the wave of the future?
Is the live class soon to be an anachronism?
Are there other benefits for live classroom interaction in professional schools, in which students are taught the professional norms, culture, vocabulary and values of their area of professional study, and have the opportunity to interect with and learn from fellow students.
Could some or all of these goals of benefits of graduate and professional education by provided through online learning, or various substitutes for a live class.
