I gave a presentation in Indianapolis in July at the 2008 biennial conference of the Legal Writing Institute about teaching legal writing online. My presentation, with the slides in several formats and supporting resources, can be found here.
I gave a presentation in New York about laptops in the classroom at the 2008 American Association of Law Schools meeting; it was part of a debate about whether they should be banned.  An overview of my contribution to this program, together with the slides, can be found here.
I have created a new page that contains links to all my student evaluations since I started teaching full time at DU.  You will find it here.
I am one of those teachers who believes that teachers should read Student Evaluations closely and take the best advice that students offer them to heart.  I am gratified by what students have said about my work with them, but I often learn things from my evaluations, and always try to make adjustments based on them.

Below are links to the student evaluations that I have received for the courses I have taught at the Sturm College of Law between 2004 and 2008. Somewhat out of date, but I will be adding more recent ones soon! What I often say about my evaluations is that I am deeply gratified by what my students say about my work with them. It is my honor and privilege to help them grow - at this early stage - into the competent and ethical attorneys I know they will become.
