Curricular Reform - Preserving the Integrity of Experiential Learning Curriculum Reform Track
The promotion of experiential learning by many critics of legal education is exciting and challenging. Exciting because clinicians already embrace the value of experiential learning for deep development of lawyering skills and professional identity and want to expand its use. Challenging because the push to innovate might lead to quick solutions, further constrained by limited resources that could weaken the effectiveness of experiential learning or rely primarily on instructors unfamiliar with experiential pedagogy. This mini-plenary will interrogate the concept of experiential learning, seeking core principles and best practices; considering the value, costs and challenges of different experiential education models on student development; and examining the roles of professional educators and practitioners in guiding student development.

10:45 am - 12:15 pm
Equilibrium in Our Lives/ Mindfulness/Self-Care
This mini-plenary presents the all too common scenario of the Overgenerous and Overextended Clinician and offers strategies for achieving greater balance in one's life. Most clinicians are under constant pressure, working hard to do our very best in our jobs and with our students, meeting the needs of our families and loved ones, and making a positive difference in our communities. The pressures are unending and consume not only our time but also our mental and emotional energy. This mini-plenary aims to assist clinicians in developing a personal strategy to regain balance and develop a more mindful practice.

10:45 am - 12:15 pm
Pedagogy - Fostering Deep Learning in Clinical Law Students
Law students engaging in experiential education often have intense, meaningful experiences during the semester. But does the learning that takes place during the semester last once the students leave our class? What approaches can law professors take to instill deep learning principles in our students? What are the essential learning questions that our students should focus on to help this happen? What creative approaches can be taken? How do we evaluate whether students have grasped these lasting lessons?
