Taking the Instruction of Law Outside the Lecture Hall: How the Flipped Classroom Can Make Learning More Productive and Enjoyable (for Professors and Students)
AbstractThis article addresses the viability and utility of the “flipped classroom” concept in law school classrooms. The author argues that video capsules, as a means to lecture outside of the classroom, are an effective way to teach the so-called Generation Y and reclaim the classroom. By using class time to concentrate almost entirely on problem-solving, students are more focused and engaged in the material. Although technologies create certain challenges for the future of legal education, the potential to reinvent the way course material is delivered will help law faculties reach a generation of students that are proving difficult to inspire using traditional means.
