The Law School Educational Technologist Survey – 2 Years Later Presented by: Debbie Ginsberg, Chicago-Kent College of Law, Barbara Glennan, California Western School of Law, Chester Kozikowski, Boston College Law School, Lindsay Matts, William Mitchell College of Law, Alex Berrio Matamoros, Boston College Law School
In the 2009 law school educational technology survey, we found that while law school educational technologists loved their jobs, the duties and expectations from school to school varied widely.
Two years on, our job descriptions have become more standardized. What should law school faculty and staff expect when a law school hires an educational technologist?
several current law school educational technologists showcase specialized projects and processes they’ve been able to bring to their law schools.
What do educational technolgists support?
- projectors, lecture capture, videoconferencing, exam software, polling software
- CMS (81% use Twen)
- distance education (ABAallowing more credits)
- Adobe Connect (maybe supported by Westlaw)
- Elluminate – bought by Blackboard (maybe supported by Lexis)
- faculty technology
- bepress, ssrn, expressO
- blogging, youtube, ppt
- student technology
more faculty are comfortable with the technology than 2 years ago
