Conference on Technology in Legal Education Calls for Proposals by November 1

Former Senior Director

The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning and North Carolina Central School of Law are co-hosting a conference on March 3, 2012, which will focus on the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning in and out of the classroom. They announced a call for proposals, due November 1, 2011.

From the conference announcement:

When legal educators talk about technology in law school, the discussion often addresses issues such as law students’ use of laptop computers in the classroom, the use of Internet-based course management tools (such as TWEN or Blackboard), and the use of technology to display classroom materials (such as PowerPoint presentations and video clips).  This conference will take the discussion beyond these traditional topics. Conference presenters and participants will explore how advanced use of technology can:

  • Enhance student learning in the traditional law school classroom,
  • Maximize distance learning opportunities consistent with ABA rules, and
  • Expand the ability of clinical and pro bono programs to deliver legal services.
