The Rhythm Experience: Change, Challenge and Opportunity

In life as in music, rhythm is the great coordinator of our actions, a vehicle for achieving our goals, expressing our intentions. I’m “in the groove”, “marching to the beat of a different drummer”, and “out of sync” are all ways we describe our work and life experience, and our relationship to them.

Among the most powerful and effective ways to manage change in organizations of all kinds is the ability to coordinate action with those we work with. To feel the rhythm of their way of work and being, and to share our own, as we align ourselves with new directions that change will always provide. And if change is constant, then being able to sense change, and align with it is an invaluable skill.

We will use rhythm as both a metaphor, and a lived experience of change and the opportunities we sometime mistake as problems, and explore our own capacity for innovation, flexibility and resilience in this hands on, playful and powerful experience.

Collaboration and Control: Building the New Collaborative Web
In the grand battle between collaborative and expressive web technologies in education, expressive technologies won. We engage our students in forums, talk to them in Slack, have them write personal blogs. Wiki, once considered a contender in the blogs vs. wikis Battle Royale, has fallen by the wayside. This keynote will examine some of the reasons behind the decline, talk about the risks such a decline poses, and sketch out a possible future for the web which envisions a better balance of collaboration, expression, and personal control.

Planning the 2018 ABA TECHSHOW Academic Track: A presentation and an opportunity to help shape the Future!
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.

Relieving Stress: Rhythm as a Mindfulness Practice
This playful and creative approach to experiencing the present moment is a wonderful way to address the stresses of life, requires no musical experience, and is accessible to absolutely everyone. Drum circles and other facilitated rhythm experiences create connections both to our own unique value and with those around us, creating a sense of bonding and community.

We will use rhythm instruments and explore both a fun drum circle format, as well as other programming options that utilize reflective activities and conversations to connect us to our sense of wellbeing while being “in play” with one another.

Stop Calling it *Distance* Learning - It's Just Learning
Widespread adoption of synchronous classroom platforms in distance learning and “flipped classroom” techniques in in-person, face-to-face learning has blurred the shoreline where the sea of distance learning meets the land of fixed-facility learning. The list of shared teaching and learning tools is long and growing: web-based syllabi and assignments, automated grading, electronic office hours, formative assessment, recorded content (e.g. class archives), gamified learning exercises and simulations, etc. This session examines the intersection of two great teaching and learning modalities and asks the question: “Does the name make a difference anymore?” Join us for a lively discussion group and just maybe help solve a long-running controversy!

The Human Element in Search Algorithms: Bias and Accountability in Legal Databases
This session introduces a study of search algorithms in legal databases (Casetext, Fastcase, Google Scholar, Lexis Advance,Ravel,and Westlaw). Their algorithms are created by humans, who have made multiple choices about how the search will be carried out and what processes and documents will be used to enhance search results. Legal researchers don't know a lot about what those choices were, but the choices have a dramatic effect on the search results each database returns. Every algorithm works in a unique matrix of assumptions, biases, and enhancements, that might be called an algorithmic world view, and those world views vary widely. The study used identical searches in identical jurisdictional databases in each of the six legal databases, and the variations in results are startling. Every legal database returns unique and relevant results, and the overlap in the results is much less than might be expected. One major takeaway: we need keep asking for more algorithmic accountability from database providers.

Web Development in an Outsourced Age: How CALI Partnered with Bitovi to Rewrite A2J Author
A2J Author was created by the CALI team in 2004 to provide a pro se litigant friendly front end for document assembly. It has been used more than 3.5 million times in the past 13 years. However, it was written in Flash, which has quickly been deprecated across the web. CALI partnered with Bitovi, a team of Javascript developers and UX designers, to revamp A2J Author as a web based authoring environment with its own internal document assembly tool.

This session will explore the process of integrating an outside development team into an existing software project. We'll explore how Bitovi used CanJS, a JavaScript architectural library, to move A2J Author away from a Flash code base, toward a more modular component based model that's easier to implement, re-use, and test. We'll talk about how we use tools like Github, Gitlab, Slack, Screenhero, Google Hangouts, and GoToMeeting to work with a team of developers all over the world and maintain a growing code base.

Blocked! What is Blockchain and what will it mean for the future of law?
Isn’t blockchain just for weird cryptocurrencies like BitCoin? Not any more. So what is it? A “distributed database that maintains a continuously growing list of ordered records called blocks. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data — once recorded, the data in a block cannot be altered retroactively. “ (Thanks, Wikipedia.)

Because they are resistant to change, blockchains can be used to store all kinds of data – from legal contracts, to primary legal research texts, and more. In this session, I’ll discuss the basics of blockchains, how the tool is being used today, and how this tool could be incorporated into the future of legal research and practice. Blockchains would be especially useful for authenticating state legal materials. I'll also showcase tools used to create and manage blockchains.

Social Media Jeopardy- Ethics Edition
Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks have become so integrated into our daily lives that it is critical for future attorneys to maintain an understanding of how these platforms can benefit their legal practices. Social media has expanded the world of legal and investigative research. It has provided a wealth of information that attorneys can use to keep up with legal trends, learn more about clients and competitors, and research jurors.

Since social media has changed the way we interact both personally and professionally, it is critical that future attorneys use social media with awareness and integrity. This session will discuss avoiding the potential pitfalls of using social media in legal practice. Attendees will participate by answering questions using their mobile devices, while learning about social media best practices and the evolving ethical and legal implications for its usage.

Professional Social Media: More Fun than [Barrel Emoji] [Monkey Emoji]
The presenter is a reference librarian and legal research instructor, and she coordinates the social media for a law school library.

Our own social media presences are among the models law students look to, when figuring out how to market themselves and their future practices.

The traditional emphasis of social media advice on "what not to post" and "how to be unfindable online" will be gently subverted in favor of "what to post" and "how to build trust, open up, and reach out."

Attendees who manage individual or organizational social media will leave with a trove of ideas for what to post, how to reach out, and how to have more fun with social media while staying professional.

Lessons from Distance Learning -- Using Effective Asynchronous Delivery Techniques to “Flip” the Traditional Law School Classroom
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.

The Future of CALI is so bright, you will need sunglasses

CALI turns 35 this year and we have a lot of projects cooking.  Many of those projects are at the cutting edge of legal education and the adoption of new technologies.  

We recently launched a brand new version of A2J Author which is used by courts and legal aid organizations to automate legal forms and processes for self representing lititgants.  This new version is mobile-aware, runs in the browser and has a rudimentary document assembly system that challenges the Windows/MSWord-only hegemony that are designed for lawyers (not SRLs).

A2J Author is also available to law schools as a teaching tool in automated decision making, legal process automation and a host of other possible learning applications that are representative of 21st century law practice.  

CALI now publishes over 50 law school casebooks under a Creative Commons license.  These books are free in two ways.  Free in the sense that they cost nothing to any faculty or students who want to download and use them.  They are also “free” in the sense that they come with automatic permission to re-mix, re-use and re-publish.  Faculty and students can download the PDF, MSWord or ebook versions of our books and use them as they need to fit their educational goals.  With over 50,000 downloads, this consortia model of publishing is shaking up the staid textbook publishing market in legal education.  

CALI has built an amazing formative assessment tool that sits on top of our 1000+ CALI lessons and lets faculty create their own multiple-choice quizzes.  This technology is a combination of our CALI Author, LessonLink and Instapoll projects from the past.  The formative assessment reporting system is called LessonLive because faculty can run a CALI lesson (or quiz of their making) inside the classroom and students can follow along, answering questions, with the results displayed on the faculty dashboard.  This is like a clicker in every CALI lesson and can be run live or asynchronously.  

Our newest tool that we call QuizWright, let’s faculty create their own, short, multiple-choice formative assessments where they can review the results live or later once everyone has completed the assignment.  The software is open source and the system gives faculty complete control without requiring students to purchase or install anything on their own PCs or smartphones - everything runs in the browser.  

There’s more going, so come to this session to get the news and join the discussion on CALI’s future.  We crave feedback and ideas!  I truly believe that CALI is entering a period of growth and advancement that is unprecedented in our history.

Curricular Reform in a Fully Online Law School
Although there has been much said and written about the hybrid online or "flipped" law school classroom in recent years, there has been scant focus among traditional law schools on course design in a fully online format. Concord Law School at Kaplan University, the nation's first fully online law school in the country, founded in 1998, is undergoing a holistic revision of its entire required curriculum, the equivalent of 16 year long classes. From this natural experiment, valuable insights for more traditional schools can be gained regarding (a) how distance learning and adult learning research can be effectively integrated into computer-based interactive activities that promote knowledge acquisition and skills building; (b) how experiential learning can be integrated into a fully online setting; and (c) the potential advantages of coordinating curriculum across courses and across program years. The presenter will demonstrate some of these activities, and will offer recommendations regarding strategic planning and implementation of reforms.

Visual Thinking: Strategies, Assets & Tools
From emojis to TED talks, visuals are increasingly central to sharing information. Whether your task is preparing a slideshow for a conference, illustrating a blog post, or posting to social media, having the right visual illustrations will help make your message more persuasive and memorable.

At Chicago-Kent, I am regularly asked to help find and create visual assets to support faculty research and communication, set up websites, and manage social media accounts. My background as an art major, librarian, and event photographer makes me well suited to these tasks. Still, many of the tools and strategies I use don’t require a lot of specialized training. In this presentation, I’ll showcase tools that can help even novice designers look like an expert.

I’ll start with visual strategies that help determine which types of visuals are the best match for your content and audience, from charts to maps to photos.

I’ll describe the free search tools and resources I rely on to find images and illustrations and licensing works with for free images.

I’ll also share the tools I use for design and editing files, including a variety of free tools that don’t require installation or extensive training.

Will you be sharing your image research or designs with others? I’ll also highlight the collaborative or sharing options built into each tool as I go.

pfSense, HaProxy, and Snort
I think it's time for another tech talk at CALI! This session will primarily cover pfSense, HaProxy and Snort. These three tools can work together to protect and extend the capabilities of your network. They are all also open source and thus, freely available.

I will cover how to set up: a firewall, high availability and load balanced web sites, VPN connections (with or without two factor), and inline intrusion detection with real time blocking!

As these solutions can be deployed locally, either on physical hardware or virtual platforms, as well as the cloud, we expect this session to be beneficial to everyone, especially those on ever decreasing budgets!

In addition to going through a setup and various configuration options, I will be taking questions and offering assistance in how these tools can improve your setup!

Dance a little too hard the night before?  Forearms tired from bowling? Didn’t get to play because you left early to check on work (as one does)?  Take a moment to grab your breakfast and then focus on YOU. This session aims to be refreshing and rejuvenating – Use this time to learn some self-care principles and practical tips that will not only help your body but also stimulate your mind as you find creative approaches to your unique challenges in legal education.

    We will spend 45 minutes doing what I like to call “chair yoga” – learn breath control techniques to calm nerves, stretches to release tension, and other mindful principles that you can practice right at your desk when you get back home.
    Bonus: A fun little gift bag to help keep the fun going long after the session is over (not kidding; I will have gift bags for anyone who shows up!)

What makes for a good lawyer?
What skills make for good lawyers?

Clients and lawyers, when asked, gave a range of answers: Negotiation. Risk management. Empathy. Active listening. Efficiency. Management. Conjecture. Strategy. Business management skills.

There are many skills which are hard to pin down, hard to measure, but very, very important to being an effective lawyer. In this session, we will work in small groups to try to pin down what these skills are and how to classify them. Time permitting, we might try to develop what sorts of activities might help students develop these skills. If time is very generous, we might even try to come up with some ways in which we might measure whether or not we are successful, or what technologies might help facilitate that sort of development.

This session will be facilitated by Piotr Mitros, the Chief Scientist of edX, and the creator of the edX platform. Mitros is experienced in using technology to support evidence-based techniques in teaching-and-learning across a range of fields, and is a leader in the fledgling field of using big data to assess complex skills. Mitros believes in bringing together subject matter experts (in this case, lawyers), educators, and technologists to improve teaching-and-learning experiences.

Hidden Treasures – Discovering Unintended Benefits of Technology
Many times we implement technology for a specific purpose, and then find unintended benefits along the way. Unintended consequences create outcomes that were not planned at the outset of a particular action. We welcome unexpected benefits, and we will demonstrate scenarios where we discovered “hidden treasures” that exceeded our original intent. Technologies to be discussed will include lecture capture software, polling software, cloud storage, etc.

We plan to share some background for why we initially adopted several new technologies, and then discuss the unexpected value of these technologies. We would love to hear from others who have found their own booty and/or fools gold.

Is it time to welcome our robot overlords?
You've probably heard of ROSS Intelligence, Kira Systems, or Lex Machina but what about Premonition, Docubot, or the Do Not Pay chatbot?
Artificial intelligence has the potential to transform the practice of law. Or does it? Skeptics predicted a legal apocalypse while optimists predict positive outcomes. Either way, it's a revolution.
Find out more about how AI is, and will, impact the legal industry. Topics will include defining artificial intelligence, the history of AI’s development, as well as big law’s approach to AI, ethics implications, and how AI is currently being used in the legal environment. We’ll also discuss whether law, in particular, presents unique problems for machine learning and engage the audience in a conversation about AI’s potential for disrupting legal research and other areas of legal practice such as IT management. Finally, we’ll consider what the development of AI means for our instruction and research strategies.

Legislative Advocacy and the Law School: Librarians unite?!
Government information preservation is in everyone's best interest. With the lack of standard funding for website preservation of .gov and .mil websites, a volunteer effort (a grassroots effort if you will) began in 2008 among the Library of Congress, the Internet Archive, and tech-savvy librarians at a couple major universities. Every four years, this small but mighty group banded together to pull, harvest and preserve webpage content before a new administration could change or remove the content. The 2016 End of Term web preservation effort saw exponential increases in volunteer support, including additional groups motivated to create nominate-a-thons or save-a-thon events to help find urls and copy the data into Internet Archive servers. This presentation will discuss the current status of public access to prior years of government web pages, the University of San Diego's Save-a-thon as a case study of legislative advocacy at the law school, and what future efforts we can do as law librarians.

Lawyer ≠ Luddite
Being a competent attorney means being a competent technologist. ABA Model Rule 1.1 (Competence) requires all lawyers to stay abreast of technology even if they still use a Dictaphone and typewriter and think “the cloud” refers to the fluffy white stuff in the sky. It can be malpractice to misuse or misunderstand technology, and this misuse can take many forms. Lack of familiarity with technology can lead to improper production of confidential information, delays in litigation, wasting time and client funds, ending up on Above the Law (and not in a good way), and more.

Legal technology courses are becoming increasingly common on law school campuses, but there is no model curriculum or consensus as to what topics should be covered. The technology available to lawyers is revolutionizing the practice of law and introducing new opportunities and efficiencies, but is changing on a constant basis. Exasperating both of these situations is the sometimes murky interpretation and enforcement of the ABA rules.

At the Pence Law Library, we are currently surveying students’ technological competence through a Basic Technology Competence Checklist adapted from Sam Glover at lawyerist.com. The survey asks about basic computer, Internet, data security, and e-discovery competence. We intend to use the results of the survey to fill in the gaps in our students’ understanding of technology.

The goal of the presentation is to a.) discuss ABA model rule 1.1 and its commentary, as well as other professional rules and responsibilities imposed by state bars, b.) evaluate technological competencies for lawyers and students, including methods for their instruction, and c.) discuss the emerging technologies that will impact that practice of law in the future. All of these topics will be covered with a mind towards developing ethical members of the bar.

Cloud Services, Central IT, and Subscription-based Apps: The changing role of Law School IT and the real value-add that IT OPs can provide
Given the ever-changing landscape of IT services these days, some may wonder if they still need dedicated IT personnel at a law school. Some IT workers at law schools may feel threatened by the growth of cloud services, central campus IT expansions, and subscription-based operating systems and applications historically managed by law school IT departments. Is IT Ops really dying or dead at your law school? This panel will discuss the changing focus of law school IT and how the departments can change to offer real value-added services to their law school mission.

Creating Videos that Law Students Love: Investigating Students' Satisfaction with Online Educational Media
A lot of research has examined the efficacy of online multimedia used in educational environments (Clark & Mayer, 2016). However there have been fewer investigations into how these environments impact the satisfaction of students, that is, even though the video may properly adhere to multimedia theory, how do the students feel about what they are watching and learning?

Quimbee aims to answer this question by conducting an experiment in the spring of 2017 that explores student media satisfaction along four dimensions: quality of the visuals, quality of the explanation, quality of the production, and quality of the learning. Students are recruited via Quimbee’s website and placed into one of three, randomized, counterbalanced conditions and asked to watch and rate videos produced using three different styles: talking head, powerpoint-based, and multimedia-based.

This presentation will share the background and procedure of the study, the results of the study, as well as key takeaways that will inform future online educational media development.

Decision Making Models in 2/2 Time – Two Speakers, Two Models (Maybe)
Our students have to learn so many new skills to be successful in law school and law practice. Legal research, client interviewing, and case analysis just for starters. Our teaching methods have to engage our students while preparing them to “think like a lawyer.” We also have the responsibility to familiarize students in evaluating the “benefits and risks associated with relevant technology” and to develop efficient practices and processes. The speakers will look at decision making models that are practical and useable.

One speaker will discuss his experiences in a clinical setting using decision trees, teaching his students to visualize the questions, the potential responses, and the citations of legal authority in a logical sequence. The benefits of the decision tree in the clinical setting include protection of clients from injury through professional error and assistance to the clinical faculty in supervision but other benefits include indoctrination of attorneys regarding critical issues in legal analysis, improvement of risk management, promotion of access to justice, fostering judicial economy, and helping to rehabilitate and reclaim the professional image of lawyers. He will discuss the development and content of the decision tree prototype.

The second speaker will address the use of mind maps in teaching legal research. Teaching students about finding cases and statutes is not the most exciting of topics. We still use research plans and pathfinders. This is not how we effectively engage our students. While mind mapping is not new, using the technique to teach legal research and analysis is, and it may just bring a little zing to the classroom. The speaker will examine the upsides and yes, downsides, to adopting mind mapping in the classroom, and review current products and services, free and for fee.

Bye-bye Yellow Pad: Mobile Device and Cloud Solutions
It is time to think in new ways about mobile devices and cloud storage. With the right program in place and guidance from your IT organization, students, faculty members and administrative offices can find new efficiency in non-paper solutions. Two IT directors from Campbell Law and Duke Law describe hardware/software programs designed to do just that.
Larry Essary will describe Campbell Law’s partnerships with Sony’s Digital Paper (portable pdf editor) and Citrix’ ShareFile (cloud storage). Essary is working to identify a variety of uses of these technologies, which to date include faculty grading of final exams, weekly legal writing assignments, and bar preparation essays. Faculty and staff have also used the Digital Paper to “carry” hundreds of pages of materials when they travel to conferences, while retaining the ability to markup pages and save them for later review or sharing with colleagues. Effectiveness and efficiency are achieved by not printing documents, allowing faculty members to grade anywhere at any time and not using email resources for providing access to the document by faculty and student. The Digital Paper’s Wi-Fi capability and a ShareFile app for the DP allow for automatic synchronization, so that changes to files are safe, even if the DP is lost or damaged. Internal storage has the capacity for thousands of pdf documents and there is a micro SD slot for further expansion. Another potential use case is student notetaking. Several scientific studies have shown that information retention can be increased when taking notes by hand, rather than typing on a laptop. Again, having a digital copy for easy review and sharing is an additional benefit.
Wayne Miller will discuss Duke Law’s Digital First project, which makes use of iPad Minis and Box.com. The outlines of this initiative were discussed at last year’s CALI. In the context of this presentation, we will look specifically at the “workflows” developed to support a variety of courses. A workflow is a carefully vetted and documented set of steps used to satisfy an identified exercise or project need. Data is stored on and retrieved from students’ Duke Box accounts for use within selected apps. We will look at the details of workflows for knowledge management, image and document capture, annotation, recording, videoconferencing, and collaborative authoring. In one course, rather than create workflows, Academic Technologies staff members consulted with individual students regarding their software and presentation needs. The project continues to evolve with new courses and improving software.

5 x 5 Gamified Review of CALI's Materials and Tools - With Opportunities to Win Prizes - Including a Vintage CALI Mousepad
In 1996, CALI offered 100 lessons that schools installed on desktops in their computer labs using discs that CALI mailed to each school.

Today, the range of materials and the scope of tools available from CALI has expanded. CALI offers over 1000 lessons that work across many platforms in 35 areas of the law, free OER casebooks written by leading scholars, faculty podcasts, and A2J Author® that allows law students to build web-based interfaces for document assembly. Plus there are tools to track and assess your students' learning, or to create your own course blog or casebook.

Using a quasi random outcome generator with a headgear enabled selection mechanism, and a dead tree facilitated array in a dexterity-based selection algorithm, CALI's products, course materials, and features will be explained and demonstrated.

Secure Computing for Clinical Student Attorneys at Colorado Law
Colorado Law takes our ethical obligations seriously to protect the confidential client data for our legal clinics. In theory, this is straightforward, but in practice it is a real challenge when faced with protecting this data across 120 practicing student attorneys with limited resources. Join Colorado Law’s Clinical Programs Manager and Senior IT Director for a look at the past, present, and future of their Secure Desktop solution.

After trying everything from a shared network drive, encrypting student devices, and VMWare we found success at last with a terminal services remote desktop solution utilizing a browser-based client using Ericom’s AccessNow technology. Each of our student attorneys have access to their own secure desktop within their web browser across any device. Complexity is the enemy to good security and this simple solution has significantly increased our adoption.

This session will outline our secure desktop infrastructure and we will consider the challenges we faced from both the clinical program manager and IT perspectives.

Teaching Law Practice Tech to Law Students - State of the Art
As more and more states take note of ABA Standard RPC 1.1 Comment [8] and add state level rules which require that lawyers have basic technology competency, more law schools are responding and adding technology courses to their course offerings. This session will be discussing three major themes aimed at teaching a new technology course. Michael Robak will offer a walkthrough of the approval process for proposing a new technology course and offer tips for getting faculty and administrative officials onboard. Nichelle "Nikki" Perry will discuss methods and options for choosing your course content. Not all classes need to cover the same content! Knowing where and how your students will practice can make a difference in class coverage. Stacey Rowland will give an overview of a recently taught course at the University of North Carolina discussing technology for new lawyers. This course covered topics such as Advanced Legal Research through Ravel and Bloomberg Law Litigation Analytics, using Word Styles as a foundation for document automation, asking students to construct a mock law firm website, litigation support services as well as hands on experience with CLIO and kCura's Relativity. Our panel will offer a postmortem of our courses and share our experiences with other schools who are looking to develop a similar class.
