Conversations about Innovations in Teaching, Research and Technology

Here’s an announcement about a series of three conversations in June you might be interested in.  As you will see from the details below, this should be relevant to most law faculty even though some of this will be specific to dispute resolution.

With the unprecedented and rapid need to switch from face-to-face to synchronous online classes, everyone using exercises and simulations has learned a lot.  iDG, NegotiateUP and NTR  are launching a series of Conversations about Innovations in Teaching Research and Technology held during three Fridays in June (5th, 12th, 19th) from 12:00pm to 3pm Eastern Time.

We would like you to join these conversations to debrief these experiences, share best practices and identify how to meet future needs.

Please forward this email to interested colleagues and students.
