Thanks. I’ll review your article and probably circulate to my faculty because I’m satisfied that using TAs efficiently is one of the ways to make the increased use of formative and multiple assessments more palatable to law professors.

Thanks,

I have started the semester contemplating a suggestion from a colleague, who said that I needed to have more fun with my teaching. I haven’t yet decided what that means (bad sign!), but just keeping in mind the idea of having fun has already lightened my demeanor in the classroom and allowed me to ask myself, in the moment, questions like the one posed above by Prof. Wegner – “what do I know that is most important at this time in life to share with my students?” For those of us who tend to approach teaching with deadpan seriousness, Prof. Wegner’s query, and the idea of embodying as much joy as we can while we work, are invaluable.

I hope everyone has a meaningful MLK, Jr. Day. I’ll be taking my children to a short march in -15 F weather! See – I know how to have fun!
