Bloch on Learning Pathways and Legal Education
Kate Bloch has published an article, "Cognition and Star Trek: Learning and Legal Education," 42 John Marshall L. Rev. 959 (2009), in which she applies insights from cognitive science research to legal education. The four cognitive science insights she uses are: (1) "active learning"; (2) the value of stories; (3) the pivotal role of the visual pathway; and (4) personalizing presentation style to increase learning. The article is available from HeinOnline.
