Summer Webinar Series: Using Technology to Assist in Providing Meaningful Feedback

Using Technology to Assist in Providing Meaningful Feedback

Date: 6/24/20

ABA Standard 314 requires that students receive meaningful feedback through the use of formative and summative assessments. This webinar will demonstrate how technology can be used to assist the professor in meeting this standard and, in turn, helping the student as well. Participants will explore ways in which electronic commenting and grading can save time and keep feedback clear and organized. The session will review rubrics, address text comments on Microsoft Word and will touch on grading using a learning management system like Canvas.

I have been teaching Legal Process, the first year legal research and writing course, since 2003 and, in 2010, I proposed and developed the course Cybercrime which I have been teaching since its adoption.  With an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, I have combined my interest in technology with my interest in the law by creating this popular elective course. In Cybercrime, law students study issues involving technology and the applicability of the Fourth Amendment, statutory regulations in obtaining stored data, cyberbullying, stalking, harassment and more. I recently authored a book chapter in Millennial Leadership in Law Schools, to be published by Hein in 2020. My chapter is titled, The Importance of Feedback and it discusses, among other things, the use of technology to provide feedback.
