The knowledge base and professionalism of legal educators

August 1, 2022

I have just contributed this post to CUHK Law’s Learning Matters blog. It is based on one of the presentations given at the Directions in Legal Education conference on 10 – 11 June. Here is a link to the recording.

This post examines the nature of the teacher’s knowledge and professionalism. I argue that the two ideas are linked (our professionalism is partly derived from the knowledge base that we have as teachers). Part of this knowledge base comes from engagement with educational theory and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

In a later post (or posts) I will consider how we can engage with educational literature even though not all of us have been introduced to this literature as part of our formal education.
