Institute for Law Teaching and Learning (Save the Date) – Topeka, KS

Institute for Law Teaching and Learning (ILTL)

On June 3-5, 2019, the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning will be hosting our summer conference here at Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, KS.

The theme – “Teaching Today’s Law Students” – is intentionally broad and is designed to encompass a wide variety of topics – neuroscientific approaches to effective teaching, generational research about current law students, effective use of technology in the classroom, teaching first-generation college students, classroom behavior in the current political climate, academic approaches to less prepared students, fostering qualities such as growth mindset, resilience, and emotional intelligence in students, or techniques for providing effective formative feedback to students.

In addition to presentations by law professors from around the world—a Call for Proposals will be coming soon!—the Institute will provide several plenary sessions throughout the conference to further address relevant topics.
