Pedagogies of the Pandemic #LERC2021
The theme of the UNSW Legal Education Research Conference 2021 is Pedagogies of the Pandemic. We mean this theme broadly and at least in two basic senses. First, we are interested in discussions of what law pedagogy looks like under conditions of COVID-19. How does one take a course of study most often focused on in-class discussion and debate and conduct it virtually? What has worked and not worked in particular law subjects? And why and how?
Second, in addition to what and how we have had to teach under the pandemic, we encourage reflections about what the pandemic has taught us – what have we learnt about the institutions and intellectual life of the law school, nationally and globally? What have we learnt about our discipline and the way we teach and transmit its knowledge? Is the pandemic a ‘teachable moment?’ If so, what kind of a moment is it?
Perhaps fittingly with the pandemic situation and in light of ongoing travel restrictions, we will hold this conference as an online event.
