Feedback form is now closed.
Asynchronous content delivery now pervades almost every corner of higher education, including legal education. Today’s modern learning management system, coupled with cloud-based platforms supporting rich multimedia delivery of content, provide us with the opportunity to deliver an asynchronous law school course that rivals and even, in some respects, exceeds the effectiveness of the traditional law school classroom. That’s all well and good. However, the lessons we’ve learned in delivering distance learning under Standard 306 may also provide us with new and improved tools to “flip” the traditional law school classroom, thereby dramatically improving its effectiveness. There is substantial learning science supporting the idea of moving lecture content (pure information transfer) out of the classroom to the greatest extent possible, thereby maximizing the classroom time available for interactive, student-centered learning opportunities. While the flipped classroom is not a particularly new idea, the technology and techniques available to deliver content prior to class have improved dramatically, especially within legal education. In this presentation, I will talk about tools and techniques for effective asynchronous class preparation in support of classroom flipping, as well as tools and techniques for maximizing the value of the interactive flipped classroom.
