One of the useful outcomes from the recent EATS meeting at Stetson is a series of short video solution tips for problems that arise when we are teaching.
These include the following:-
- Creative Teaching;
- Teaching Students to Make Eye Contact
- Teaching Proper Emphasis and Pauses During Direct Examination
- Teaching Advocates to lose the "and";
- Teaching Advocates to Speak Up;
- Teaching Advocates to Slow Down;
- Dealing with Students that Push the Ethical Boundaries;
- Using Mirroring to Breakthrough a Student's Improper Behavior;
- Mentoring Adjunct Professors Who Do Not Follow the Law in Class; and,
- Handling a Student Who Responds with Emotional Pain During an Exercise.
- Using Technology to Teach Advocacy;
- Using Psychodrama When Teaching Advocacy; and,
- Using Technology to Modify Teaching Methodologies.
These were recorded by your teaching colleagues at the meeting. They can be found, enjoyed and then applied on the Stetson ARC (your fingertip advocacy resource centre) Go to: http://www3.law.stetson.edu/arc/ . It's also linked on this page. See lower right - yes it is there.
It's free and there's no hidden costs. You'll see the entry point on the right side of the page. If you haven't registered click on the link and do it. Why? Because quite apart from the recent EATS material there's so much other useful material for all our teaching - useful to us, useful to our adjuncts, and useful to our students as well. Why reinvent the wheel when you can spend your time on designing a better one?
Should I go on? Yes I should. I will. There's a number of you out there who should and could contribute material to this resource centre that would benefit so many teachers and so many students. Email Charlie Rose and start the conversation about how to make it happen.
Cheers, Your colleague.
