Podcast from CNCR Summer Institute on CR in Higher Ed

After a long hiatus I’ve managed to create and post a new podcast over at Conflict Learning Audio. This episode checks in with a variety of people working on conflict resolution in higher education. I interviewed participants attending this year’s Summer Institute on Conflict Management hosted by the Consortium on Negotiation and Conflict Resolution at Georgia State University. Here’s the direct link to the Podcast on the CNCR Summer Institute. Of special interest is an interview with Peter Shedd wherein he describes the use of a facilitated discussion model for addressing academic dishonesty cases.

Because WCL generates so much content, users can now create a custom podcast using keywords.

Online Roleplays Podcast featuring DRALE and The Campaign

Dispute Resolution and Legal Ethics flowchart As instructional technologist Matthew Riddle explains in his introduction to this podcast entitled Online Roleplays in Tertiary Education, “Role-play has long been used as an educational tool to provide learners with a way to understand the real world.  Since the advent of the World Wide Web, online role-plays have become widely used in Australian tertiary institutions to provide students with authentic learning opportunities.  This presentation profiles two examples of online role-plays developed at the University of Melbourne: DRALE Online, in which final year law students form legal teams in a dispute resolution process, and The Campaign, a role-play about journalists and political advisors following a political campaign.”

The podcast was produced using a relatively new enhanced podcasting tool designed for Mac users known as Profcast that automates the production of chaptered and illustrated podcasts using Keynote or Powerpoint.  I’d recommend viewing this podcast within iTunes for the best experience, as the online version took a long time to load and stalled once or twice. Also, when in iTunes, you can click on the current slide to see a larger version.

Podcasts from Association of American Law Schools 2006 Annual Meeting

The Association of American Law Schools 2006 annual meeting had the theme “Empircal Scholarship: What Should We Study and How Should We Study It?”. Many of the sessions were recorded and are now available as podcasts thanks to the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI). Two sessions that I thought readers of this blog would appreciate are noted below. Specific instructions on using the podcasts are here.

Section on Alternative Dispute Resolution, Co-Sponsored by Section on Family and Juvenile Law
Integrating ADR into Law School Curricula: The Example of Family Law
Integrating ADR in the Law School Curricula (mp3)

Moderator: Michael L. Moffitt, University of Oregon School of Law
Speakers: Kelly Browe Olson, University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law
Jennifer Lorraine Rosato, Brooklyn Law School
Andrew Schepard, Hofstra University School of Law
Andrea Kupfer Schneider, Marquette University Law School

For at least the past two decades, some academics interested in dispute resolution have sought ways to integrate ADR into traditional law school curricula. Dispute resolution course offerings have increased dramatically. Efforts at creating true integration into other ?doctrinal? courses, however, have met with only varying degrees of success. Now, scholars in one increasingly important doctrinal area of the law - family law - have undertaken their own curricular re-examination. And the implications and opportunities for those who teach ADR are significant.

The Family Law Education Reform project (FLER) began with the proposition that what students learn in traditional family law classes is unacceptably removed from what successful, responsible family lawyers actually do in practice. The FLER project aims to provide family law teachers with the ideas, tools, and materials they need to bring family law teaching in line with family law practice, and to help students become effective and reflective family law practitioners, leaders, and policy makers. To the surprise of no one, dispute resolution skills feature prominently in the list of skills necessary for family law practitioners, according to the FLER project participants. (One FLER participant even suggested that no student should receive credit for family law without also taking a course in ADR). The multi-year FLER project will be issuing its final report around the time of the AALS Annual Meeting, making this an important moment for reflection.

Section on Teaching Methods
The How Tos and Whys: Exploring the Consequences of Our Pedagogical Choices
Exploring the Consequences of Our Pedagogical Choices (mp3)

Moderator: Paula Ann Franzese, Seton Hall University School of Law
Speakers: Andrew Beckerman-Rodau, Suffolk University Law School
Robin A. Boyle, St. John?s University School of Law
Julia Patterson Forrester, Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law
Richard C. Reuben, University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law
Nancy J. Soonpaa, Texas Tech University School of Law

This program will explore many of the ?how-tos? of effective teaching, including how to reach the whole class, how (and when) to cross the bridge from the theoretical to the more practical, how to use a variety of teaching techniques to accommodate diverse learning styles, how to ?norm? appropriate standards of professionalism and how to determine (and when to adjust) the scope of coverage. Participants will demonstrate and deconstruct some of their pedagogical choices, and offer perspectives on lessons learned.
