THOMSON REUTERS WITH THE ASSOCIATION OF LAW TEACHERS
Teaching Law With Technology Prize 2020 - Final
8th October 2020, 10-11.30am BST
The Teaching Law with Technology Prize, in association with the Association of Law Teachers, celebrates innovation and creativity in bringing technology to the classroom.
Our finalists represent a cohort of legal educators enriching the legal learning experience and enabling their students to develop practical and technological skills alongside legal knowledge.
During the webinar, we will hear from:
- - Linda Chadderton from the University of Central Lancashire on “Legally Bound”, her legally themed escape room concept using gamification to build legal research skills, as well as teamwork and communication, while increasing student attendance and engagement.
- - Hugh McFaul from the Open University on his Justice in Action module which makes use of education technologies to provide a bridge between the law school and the community, and between students and the legal profession.
- - Imogen Moore from Bristol University’s Padlet project uses freely available accessible technology to create a more responsive and empowering learning environment by enabling students to ask questions anonymously in real time, and for the lecturer to address them immediately.
While the delegates vote and judges deliberate, we will hear from Joseph Raczynski, Legal Technologist and Futurist, on why technological expertise matters to law students and aspiring lawyers.
Join us to support our finalists in sharing their ideas. There will be an opportunity to put questions to the finalists during the webinar.
