One of the hats I’ve worn in my career is that of an educator. Whether it was training new attorneys and paralegals, teaching academic classes, or just coaching someone in a current or future role, I’ve been teaching for decades.
And I’ve spent the better part of the past 10 years working to convince law school and paralegal school leaders -– frankly, anyone who’d listen — that online education (aka distance learning) is the future. It’s the big disrupter that the education business needs. Now, with the unprecedented COVID-19 virus, it seems that all of the schools in the world, from K-12 to undergrad and graduate ones, have transitioned online inside the course of a few weeks. Amazing!
