Integrating Diversity into Legal Research Instruction in the COVID Era: Tips and Techniques for Class Management with Shamika D. Dalton, Clanitra Steward Nejdl, and Raquel Gabriel

Wednesday, February 24 at 1pm ET – Effective classroom management is a crucial component of promoting learning and student engagement, decreasing student anxiety, and maintaining an orderly academic setting. As the inclusion of race, diversity, and implicit bias becomes more prevalent in the legal research classroom, the need for meaningful and effective classroom management techniques intensifies. Without having these techniques at the ready, the introduction of such issues could prove disastrous.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic has led to many legal research classes moving to online platforms, addressing race, diversity, and implicit bias in these classes becomes even more challenging. Legal research instructors and professors have had to adjust their classroom management techniques accordingly. The first part of this program will introduce attendees to classroom management techniques that support and advance the benefits of addressing race, diversity, and implicit bias in the legal research classroom. In the second part of the program, the presenters will provide ways to adjust these techniques to match the challenges of addressing these issues during an online legal research course. Emphasis will be placed on providing concrete examples of classroom management techniques that suit the online environment. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss classroom management techniques with one another.
