What makes an effective law course? Student-centered course design and this year’s bootcamp will teach you how to (1) create a course that aligns with effective, student-centered goals; (2) align course content with goals; (3) create and curate learning activities and assessment that are engaging and accurately teach and evaluate student learning; (4) and more!
