Abstract: Redesign center-wide, summer clinic orientation to incorporate blended learning. Offer a robust and uniform orientation experience to year-long clinics that can also be utilized by academic year clinics in the Frank J. Remington Center.
Redesign portions of the existing center-wide, summer clinic orientation to incorporate elements of blended learning. The long-term goal will be to offer a robust and uniform orientation experience to year-long clinics that can also be utilized by academic year clinics in the Frank J. Remington Center. I am working with a past Fellow on a project between the Frank J. Remington Center, the Economic Justice Institute, and the Center for Patient Partnership (CPP) to leverage existing blended learning experiences (of CPP) and EI resources to enhance the overall blended learning capacity and student experience across the three centers. Through is project, we will be able to add additional components and increase the emphasis on specific content areas. My current area of module design and component development is skills training in legal interviewing, and I plan to work with AT staff on curricular design to identify pedagogical reasoning for specific modes of content delivery in blended learning environment.
