Aaron Dewald, Associate Director of the Center for Innovation in Legal Education (CILE) at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will present two panels at Syracuse University on May 6. He describes his presentation as an “extended faculty workshop” about all things that factor into blended learning, “flipped classrooms,” and active learning/simulations.
Dewald will present on the science of learning and the use of technology in law school classrooms. His first presentation will be on the role of learning science and the use of technology in providing instruction for the flipped classroom. The second will focus on active learning, such as the development of experiential simulations and other activities that can be utilized to support the instructional material. Both sessions will have hands-on exercises that will give practical experience in applying the concepts addressed.
The CILE studies the use of blended learning in the first year of legal education. To view the videos that have been part of the successful Contracts project, as well as other projects in process, view the CILE’s YouTube page.
