Law Teaching for Adjunct Faculty is a one-day conference for new and experienced educators and administrators interested in developing and supporting adjunct teaching. The conference will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2013, at the Western State College of Law, Fullerton, California and is co-sponsored by the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning and Western State College of Law.
Because adjunct professors provide experience from practice and a strong commitment to teaching, this conference will focus on ways to help them. Sessions may address topics such as
- Designing course objectives,
- Selecting appropriate teaching methods,
- Giving students feedback,
- Implementing assessments,
- Relating to students,
- Connecting with faculty,
- Working with administrators,
- Balancing teaching and law practice, and
- Continuing to develop as teachers.
By the end of the conference, participants will have concrete ideas to bring back to their students, colleagues, and institutions.
Who Should Attend
This conference is for all law school adjunct faculty, full-time teachers, and administrators who are committed to supporting and developing adjunct teaching.
