This session is a panel discussion by professors who utilized technology for synchronous and asynchronous law school learning prior to the pandemic. The discussion involves three central questions:
1. How has emergency remote teaching influenced the panelists’ choices for using asynchronous vs. synchronous learning strategies?
2. How do law professors approach asynchronous course design with intentionality?
3. What’s the difference between approaching synchronous teaching online vs. synchronous face to face teaching? Can synchronous online classes be interactive, engaging, collaborative?
As part of this conversation, the panelists will discuss their experience with moving to emergency remote teaching, connecting that experience with broader concerns about intentional course design. The panelists will focus particularly on their thoughts for ensuring that distance education is accessible, interactive, and engaging, as well as providing specific tips about using learning management programs and video creation and editing software and concrete resource suggestions.
