Institute for Law Teaching and Learning Conferences
Summer 2021 Conference
Reflecting Back and Moving Forward: Effective Instruction in Online, Hybrid and In-Person Learning Environments
June 10-11, 2021
The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning is thrilled to host its Summer 2021 conference virtually, with the help of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.
Conference Theme: The future of legal education has arrived, with more and more law schools moving toward teaching part or all of their J.D. program online. The circumstances of the last year have drawn that future into closer focus and allowed nearly all law professors to explore some version of online teaching. We want to harness the momentum of the online learning curve so we can continue to improve our teaching, whether online, hybrid, or in-person. To that end, conference presentations will offer suggestions for course design, assessment, engagement, and pedagogy. But they will also include conversations about what to take forward in our classes, regardless of the mode of instruction, as we move into whatever the future holds for our profession.
Conference Structure: Conference sessions and workshops will take place on Thursday, June 10, and Friday, June 11. All conference sessions will be via Zoom, including three plenary sessions from experts in the field of online education and more than a dozen concurrent workshops presented by law school colleagues from across the country.
Registration Information: Attendance is FREE, although registration is required. We hope attendees will join for any and all sessions that seem relevant and interesting to their current teaching focus and practice.
