Joining Deliberate Practice Methods with Technology to Advance Legal Skills Instruction

Filed under: Education and Technology — Ken @ 7:19 pm

Live blogging from CALI 2008:  Larry Farmer is a true proponent of deliberate practice.  His work on using deliberate practice is compelling.  While deliberate practice is not for every type of law class there are subjects where it is applicable.  MediaNotes supports this type of practice.  He developed this software to support deliberate practice in his teaching of interviewing and counseling skills. Students capture their work using MediaNotes and a web camera. Student reviews their video and makes comments on salient moments in the video. Adjunct faculty member reviews video and provides additional feedback. One interesting note…students are told if they excel in the class they will be entered into a pool to participate as adjunct faculty the following year.  Each class, four to five students really buckle down on the work because they want to teach.
