The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism is pleased to announce that Education Manager Dan Davies will speak at the 57th Mid-Year Meeting of the Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA), which will be held virtually on January 22, 26, and 27. Davies will present a 45-minute talk titled “Designing for Engagement: Applying Instructional Design Strategies When Creating Online Learning” on January 26 at 2 p.m. CST.
ACLEA is a worldwide network designed to serve the continuing legal education profession through leadership, community, education, and development. Its mid-year meeting brings together continuing education professionals from around the globe to learn about the latest industry innovations and find inspiration for future educational programming.
Davies’ course will explore strategies for increasing engagement in online learning. The session will be a blended workshop, utilizing a recorded video and a live session. The participants will work through a series of activities to identify problems, understand learners, build scenarios, develop a course outline, and showcase their work.
“As our CLEs have moved from primarily in-person to online, Dan’s work at the Commission has been focused on how to produce engaging and informative courses for lawyers that leverage the innovations we’ve seen in online learning,” said Jayne Reardon, Executive Director of the Commission on Professionalism. “Dan has a strong background in eLearning and instructional design; we’re thrilled that he has an opportunity to share his expertise with a wider audience at ACLEA.”
