Activity: Talk or presentation › Talk or Presentation Outside of an Organised Event › Oral Presentation
This workshop will introduce faculty to digital teaching tools and explore their use in legal education. With a focus on the use of blogs, this workshop will provide inspiration, skill development, and a forum to discuss creative approaches to teaching and assessment. We will explore the idea of digital literacy for academics, lawyers, and students and discuss examples from New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. We will consider the pedagogical implications of digital technologies for both teachers and students, including questions of inclusion, voice, and opportunities for teachers and students to move beyond linear text. Kate and Estair will share their own research and experiences with blogs and other digital teaching tools, including the findings of Estair’s study on blogging and place-based legal education here at VUW, and encourage participants to explore the potential of these tools in other law papers. Workshop materials will provide practical resources for the incorporation of blogging in legal education in law papers (and beyond).
