Co-teaching in First Year Law: Improving Student Engagement with Pre-Recorded Interviews

Samantha Kontra

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The first semester of tertiary law study is challenging. Law students must gain academic knowledge and develop both academic and practical legal skills – whilst also learning the language of law. Consequently, first semester law students spend a lot of time listening to lectures and workshops, desperately trying to absorb information and understand its intersection with assigned readings. This, paired with the COVID-19-induced move to pre-recorded lectures, resulted in an exploration of different delivery models for first-year lectures. This emerging initiative examines the use of co-teaching in pre-recorded lectures as a method of better engaging first year law students, particularly when paired with experiential learning in workshops and online tasks.
