Institute for Law Teaching and Learning Conferences
Hosted by Suffolk University Law School
Have you drafted institutional learning outcomes for your law school but are unsure of what to do with them? Don’t know where to get data? Or what to do with the data once you have it?
“Beyond Learning Outcomes: Working the Assessment Plan” is a one-day conference for law professors and administrators who want to learn how to continue the assessment process for their schools, focusing on steps after the drafting of learning outcomes. By the end of the conference, attendees will have concrete and practical knowledge about the assessment process to take back to their colleagues and institutions. Additionally, each attendee will receive a copy of Assessment of Teaching and Learning: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Law Schools by Kelly Terry, Gerald F. Hess, Emily Grant, Sandra Simpson.
The conference will open with a reception on the evening of Friday, March 25, 2022, and the workshop sessions will take place on Saturday, March 26 at Suffolk University Law School in Boston. More details about the conference, including registration and hotel information, will be forthcoming on the websites of the Institute for Law Teaching & Learning and Suffolk University Law School.
* We will, of course, be monitoring the COVID situation and risks. But we're hoping beyond hope that we'll be able to have an in-person gathering. If not, we may reschedule for later in the summer. But for now, please keeps your fingers crossed that we'll be able to see everyone in Boston next March!
