USING TEACHING MODULES TO ENHANCE THE EXTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE, Room LB 11

Kelly Navarro, The John Marshall Law School

Ragini Shah, Suffolk University Law School
This session will focus on the use of modules throughout the externship experience. We will discuss how to tailor the use of online modules to the needs of particular courses and placements. We will offer an example of a module used before the start of an externship, to help each student “unlearn” what they think they know about their placement. We will discuss how to use modules throughout the externship, in ways that expand the information the student receives during the experience. We will close with a discussion of modules for use after the end of the externship experience, including a short module on how a student might use the experience on a resume or for networking purposes. Throughout, we will encourage discussion and participation.
