Abstract

Law in Context, is a 1st year course offered multimodal at USQ (on-campus & external) to about 170 undergrad & 40 postgrad students each year. Students work together to produce an assessment item that requires developing key law graduate skills (team work, oral communication, technology use, research and critical thinking) through debating contemporary issues. The course utilises 'state-of the-art' online virtual conferencing tools enabling online teaching & instantaneous audio visual communication (Wimba).
