Integrating Experiential Learning in the Classroom
1 PM GMT
*** REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED
Complimentary NON-MCLE Webinar
Join us for this complimentary and convenient webinar, presented by the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.
Mark Twain once said, "Knowledge becomes wisdom only after it has been put to good use." Today, more than ever, new attorneys are expected to be able to put their knowledge to use for clients immediately upon entering practice. Hear from your colleagues as they discuss how they've successfully utilized and incorporated experiential learning techniques in their classrooms to develop students' knowledge and skills in preparation for practice.
This webinar will focus on the following topics:
• The course design for a simulation based 1L Civil Procedure course and the range of experiential exercises the students perform within the simulation.
• Incorporating experiential education into doctrinal courses and measuring learning outcomes.
• The development and implementation of a successful upper-level Administrative Law Practicum, focused on environmental, regulatory, and ethical issues involved in a (simulated) proposed development project.
