About Diana R. Donahoe – Architect and Pedagogical Editor of TeachingLaw.com
Diana R. Donahoe, Professor of Legal Research & Writing
at Georgetown University Law Center, is the architect of TeachingLaw.com. Her
inspiration for the platform began in 2000, when she wrote an article,
Teachinglaw.com; Bridging the Digital Divide Between Professor and Student, 5
Va. J. L. & Tech. 12 (2000). The article creatively compared the teaching
and learning preferences of law professors and their digital students. As part
of her conclusions, Professor Donahoe recommended that professors create
innovative platforms to meet the students on their side of the laptops. For the
next six years, Professor Donahoe created the initial beta version of
TeachingLaw.com and tested multiple editions with her first-year law students.
Since that time, TeachingLaw.com has become a national and international
platform for innovatively engaging students in law school teaching.
Diana R. Donahoe has become an expert in the pedagogical
methods of using interactive, digital content to meet the needs of the current
generation of law school students. Her experiences, articles, and expertise
have made her invaluable in helping other professors learn to adapt their
pedagogical methods to teach digital students. As a result, she travels the
country providing presentations and roundtable discussions on the pedagogy of
the TeachingLaw.com platform. A TeachingLaw.com author herself, she also
assists other TeachingLaw authors design the content and functionality of their
books to fit within the three-dimensional, interactive platform. Her editing
