Prof. Hillary Burgess Presents on AALS Panel

Professor Hillary Burgess presented on a panel at AALS. Professor Burgess was selected from over forty proposals to present her topic,Designing Effective and Efficient Peer Exercises, with Susan Keller (Western State). The presentation focused on how to effectively design peer exercises to create meaningful learning and feedback for students. In her presentation, Professor Burgess emphasized the benefit to law professors of using peer exercises to cover more topics in more detail and depth, provide pedagogically sound methods of giving students feedback throughout the semester, all while not increasing a professor’s grading responsibilities. The objective of the presentation was to give professors teaching tools for meeting the ABA’s standards encouraging more feedback and outcome measurements.

With Professor Keller, Professor Burgess will be co-authoring and submitting this presentation for consideration of inclusion in the Techniques for Teaching 2 book, co-authored by Steve Friedland (Elon), Sophie M. Sparrow (Franklin Pierce), Gerald Hess (Gonzaga), and Michael Hunter Schwartz (Washburn). Also on the panel were moderators Emily Randon (UC Davis), Robin Boyle (St. John’s), and Kathy Garcia (LaVerne), co presenters Barbara Glesner-Fines (UMKC), Sophie Sparrow (Frankline Pierce), Barbara McFarland (Chase), and Tonya Washington (Georgia State).
