Why and How Law Schools Should Assess Faculty Tech Competency (IP)
Our session gives an overview of why law schools should conduct assessments of faculty tech competency in light of technology's increasing importance in legal practice, how we created an in-house technology assessment for our faculty, and our plans for implementing it as a broader effort to build faculty tech skills.
- Attendees will be able to articulate the role faculty play in developing technologically competent lawyers to stakeholders
- Attendees will be able to describe the skills of a tech competent faculty member
- Attendees will learn strategies for creating a faculty tech assessment without significant expenditure of resources
Attendees at all levels of expertise can benefit from the information we share, but more intermediate technology skills may be required to adopt our particular assessment methodology.
