Twenty-two percent of U.S. adults aged 18 to 29 spend 6-10 hours/week playing video games. Our class at GW Law School captures that energy in the classroom with laptop […]

Literacy Ain’t Just Books

Is tech competency the same thing as digital literacy or data literacy? Neither? Both? Is text mining the same thing as sentiment analysis? Research shows that Generation Z lacks fundamental critical thinking skills that underlie much that falls under the literacy umbrella. And much of that existing research is prior to the AI boom… Come […]

More Than a Library: How to Configure StackMap to Map Your Law School

Last year, I saw a demonstration about StackMap. Our library is only one floor, so I couldn’t justify the cost of mapping software for only a small part of our school.

Incorporating Experiential Learning Into (Almost) Any Course

This session examines a few of the doctrinal courses I teach and how I was able to incorporate experiential sessions that were not part of the original syllabus. Although the faculty prep-work is not immaterial, student reception of these types of classes makes it most worthwhile.
