Teaching the Teachers – Atlanta, GA

Teaching the Teachers

Georgia State University College of Law, Penn State Law, the Research Instruction & Patron Services Special Interest Section, and the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section present the first ever Teaching the Teachers Conference on May 30-31, 2019 in Atlanta, GA.

Proposals are due by Nov. 9, 2018.

Proposals should include a description of the program, a list of the learning objectives for the session, and an explanation of the program’s interactive component(s). Email to Becky Mattson at ram6023@psu.edu.

This course will provide a foundation in instructional philosophy, techniques, and assessment for law librarians by law librarians. Unlike similar courses provided by other organizations, this program will be a peer-to-peer, hands-on learning environment where we will be able to leverage our collective similar experiences to enhance the work that we do.

Conference topics include:
• Instructional design and planning, including instructional design and cognitive theory, developing learning outcomes and creating rigorous assessments;
• Presentation and delivery, including employing a variety of teaching methods, including presentation styles, delivery, and visual aids, and utilizing current and developing technologies in the delivery of information;
• Assessment and metrics, including developing formative and summative assessments, revising instruction based on feedback, and using technology to analyze assessment data.
