Please note that lunch will be served BEFORE the workshop starting at 11:30am at the law school. There will also be snacks and drinks at the breaks. Dinner is on your own.
The goals of the workshop are to show some things that CALI has been working on regarding CODEC and get your feedback. Distance Education is a different thing to different institutions and people. We hope to better define the things that will most benefit the community of DLE (Distance Legal Education) practitioners. If you havent already, you should read the original CODEC white paper here for you to read before the workshop (if you haven't already).
I also have a homework assignment for you prior to the workshop. There is a survey, of sorts, posted here that I would like you to fill out in the next couple of days so that I can process the results in time for the workshop. Its rather short and wont take a lot of your time. I am looking for your opinions and ideas and not necessarily institutional policies that would require meetings and discussion before you could answer. I won't publish any personal comments without getting back to you.
One of the difficulties for CODEC is triage. There are many different things we *could* do, but we know that we are early in the development of communitys thinking and planning in DLE and we want to proceed slowly, but surely. From this workshop, I hope we can more firmly reveal things that we should be doing RIGHT NOW, longer term goals and directions and what measures of success we can use to determine if we are heading in the right directions.
I look forward to seeing you in New York and to a lively and engaging discussion. With Regards, John
