TEACHING ONLINE - Converting the classroom lecture to an online Blackboard Module
Abstract: The presenter is a law librarian at the University of Saskatchewan Law Library and has taught elements of a legal research class to 1st year law students. In this collaborative teaching approach, the law librarian and Law faculty work closely together to teach Canadian legislative research, which is a component of a legal research and writing class. This presentation details the steps involved in converting classroom lectures to an online module format for first year law students in a course on researching federal and provincial statute law. The focus of this presentation is applicable to any librarian and other academic professionals who are responsible for teaching law students or articling students how to effectively leverage legal research tools and strategies.
