Microlearning Legal Research
Microlearning is a concept that addresses the short attention-span of many of today’s students by teaching one concept (or skill) in short, specific bursts. Here, we will address using the principles of microlearning in legal research classes through interactive tutorials and short instructional videos, with the intention of teaching legal research skills to law students in a manner that they will understand, retain, and be able to apply to future research projects. The microlearning module(s) presented in this session could be viewed outside of class to support a flipped classroom, which leaves more in-class time for experiential, hands-on learning. Attendees will be able to participate using their smart phones and will be able to assess the level of their comprehension of what has been taught vs. what has been learned.
