A Sense of Belonging: Giving Distance Ed Students the "Law School Experience"

Law schools have an interest in ensuring that remote students feel that they're truly part of the school.  Highly involved students are expected to perform well, identify strongly with the law school experience, and eventually become highly involved alumni.  This session will explore the benefits and challenges of fostering a sense of belonging in distance education students, and discuss the technology and policy efforts that the Syracuse University College of Law is undertaking as it rolls out its JDinteractive hybrid online law program.

This will be a beginner-level discussion of interest to schools who are currently (or who are contemplating) expanding their online programming.
