Feedback form is now closed.
The 2017 ABA TECHSHOW included the first ever Academic Track. This “conference within a conference” was designed to bring members of the Academy as well as students to the TECHSHOW to discuss building a model curriculum for teaching technology and allow for participation in other TECHSHOW sessions. In addition, attendees were encouraged to explore the Exhibitor Hall.
This first ever Academic Track consisted of six different sessions over two days. Over 40 participants representing 32 different institutions attended some portion of the Track. Not only was the first ever Academic Track a resounding success, we will be bringing the Academic Track to the 2018 TECHSHOW March 7-10, 2018 at the Hyatt in Chicago.
To create an opportunity for input into the 2018 Track this CALI session will review what occurred at the 2017 TECHSHOW Track, discuss the outcomes resulting from the sessions, and allow for session participants to help create the agenda for the next Track. We hope to replicate this session at the American Association of Law Libraries meeting in Austin, as well as the Association of American Law Schools meeting in San Diego.
This CALIcon17 session can serve as an opportunity to build on the work begun at TECHSHOW 2017 and help shape the future and direction of a technology curriculum for the Academy.
