The American Association of Law Libraries is offering a webinar on February 22 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Central Time) on Developing and Using Stories to Teach Legal Research
"In preliterate times, storytelling was the primary way of disseminating culturally relevant information and educating members of a society. Today, storytelling still serves as an effective communication technique in trial practice, business administration, and library science. While little used in law librarianship, storytelling has the potential to transform the way law librarians convey legal research techniques and legal information to law library patrons. This comprehensive webinar will introduce educational storytelling, and include a demonstration of a legal education story as well as methods for collecting, developing, and evaluating potential stories."
Speakers are Vanessa Christman, director of the El Dorado County Law Library (Lake Tahoe, California), and Beth Wrenn-Estes, lecturer in the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University.
