Teaching Lessons from CALI Lesson Authors

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low

Authoring a CALI lesson, whether as part of a CALI Fellowship or alone, requires faculty to approach, and to think about, the material that makes up their courses differently. The Family Law Fellowship started in January 2006, and the Fellows are still immersed in the lesson-writing process. To date, only four of each Fellow�s lessons have been written (and re-written). From this unique vantage point, four of the team’s Fellows will share their observations and insights about the impact of authoring on both their teaching and their writing.
