After a quick introduction of the requirements for a course to be designated a simulation course under the ABA standards, presenters will give examples on one way they help make their classes meet the simulation/experiential course standards. For example, one presenter would tell the audience three ways they introduce "self-evaluation" into her course. Another may discuss innovative methods for incorporating formative assessment. The program will give attendees easy way to incorporate experiential features into their legal research courses and to ultimately be able to submit their courses as simulations.
