The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning is proud to have hosted a virtual conference addressing the many ways that law professors and administrators adapted teaching strategies to deal with a pandemic, online learning, and virtual classrooms to reach students who were already overwhelmed by unprecedented demands.
The conference theme allowed leaders and innovators in legal education to address everything from hybrid orientation to asynchronous learning to assessments and interactive bar exam study methods. Plenary speakers discussed the successes and failures that resulted from the abrupt change to online learning, motivating students in online spaces, and building positive learning communities regardless of the learning environment. Harnessing the momentum of the online learning curve, the conference presentations included discussions about teaching techniques to take forward in all types of classes, regardless of whether the mode of instruction is online, in-person, or hybrid.
