Advancements in technology have made exploring interactive, experiential, and collaborative teaching methods easier than ever, but educational opportunities in law schools and law firms continue to fall behind other disciplines in adopting these strategies. This presentation will illustrate how law librarians can lead by example within their libraries and classrooms by implementing education technology that tailors learning to students’ unique skill sets, and provides for formative assessment of that strategy throughout the learning period. In order to help educators identify with learners and their potential struggles, participants are invited to complete their own VARK learning style assessment. Presenters will then discuss concrete strategies to address each type of learning style and highlight specific learning strategies, tools, and products for each learning style.
