Earlier this week my colleague and I here at the Dal Law Library played a large role in organizing and orchestrating Professional Development Day for the Faculty of Law this year. The theme this year was technology and it was our goal to expose our faculty to some of the tools that are emerging that they could utilize inside (and outside) the classroom. We didn’t do anything that would be revolutionary to Slaw-ers but when dealing with a group with diverse technological capabilities our goal was exposure. We covered video conferencing, podcasting, surveys of students technological wants and needs, search tools, classroom software, clickers and some novel internet tools. I don’t mind mentioning that some of my ideas for the day came from Slaw. By all accounts the day was a success. In the discussion at the end of the day an interesting point was raised, one which I do not necessarily agree with but that I want to post on Slaw in order to garner opinions. This is not just a question for the academics in the crowd but all those who are exposed to law students or recent graduates. The point that was raised was that in the opinion of this person, students actually want less, and not more information. My feeling is that students are not as interested in the volume of information but in the format that it is delivered in. But what do you think Slaw-ers? When it comes to the legal youth, do they want more information or less?
