We are pleased to offer a special webinar on September 9, 2020, titled "From Ferguson to (George) Floyd to Portland: Protesters, Police, and the Journalists in the Middle." Please see the information below to register.


We are also currently planning the 34th Annual Media and the Law Seminar for April 15-16, 2021. We will provide additional details and registration information soon. Each year, the University of Kansas School of Law and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Media Law Committee sponsor the Media and the Law Seminar in Kansas City to facilitate national dialogue about the latest legal issues and developments in media, law, and technology. For lawyers who attend, the seminar is an opportunity to identify and assess laws and court rulings that affect expressive freedom and to examine professional standards and practices for effective First Amendment advocacy. The seminar also is open to non-lawyers, including students and teachers. For them, the seminar is an opportunity to enrich their understanding of government actions and technological developments that may impede or advance citizens' exercise of their First Amendment rights.

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 7th Annual Big 12 Teaching & Learning Conference that was scheduled for June 10-12 in Kansas City. Your safety is our top priority. If you have any questions please contact Pam Hicks at phicks@ku.edu.

In today's interconnected and networked world, we can engage in discussion with individuals from across the globe and find diverse opportunities to learn about each other. Many college or university units related to teaching and learning, however, find it difficult to know where or how to build on the potential of these opportunities and model collaboration, cross-campus dialogues or projects. The Big 12 Teaching and Learning Conference will encourage participants to present and discuss effective teaching methods and frameworks that will address classroom and institutional-level interventions enhancing student learning, expanding our inclusive teaching practices, and refining assessment of student learning.
