Teaching and learning are dynamic processes: what you teach, how you teach, who you teach, and when you teach continually evolve over time. Law librarians at William & Mary and the University of Texas law schools will explain the development of our basic and advanced research courses working within our respective law school environments. Speakers from William & Mary include Jim Heller (coordinator and moderator), Chris Byrne, Fred Dingledy, and Jennifer Sekula. Kumar Percy and Beth Youngdale will speak about legal research instruction at Texas.
During the program the speakers will make brief presentations on the basic and advanced research courses at their schools. Then we will move to a roundtable discussion. Issues to be discussed include:
At the conclusion of the program, we hope attendees appreciate that teaching research is a dynamic process - what you teach, how you teach, who you teach, and when you teach can -- and should -- change over time. Again, anyone who teaches research is invited to join us in Orlando.
