Law Profs Should Talk Less, Smile More

Julie A. Oseid (St. Thomas (Minnesota)), Talk Less, Smile More, 67 J. Legal Educ. ___ (2019):

The loss of my voice from laryngitis sparks my most successful teaching experience and teaches me five things about teaching. First, I talk way more than I think I do. Second, forced creativity is still creativity. Third, talking is the easy way to teach. Fourth, students are resilient. Fifth, I don’t want to get in the way of my brilliant students.

Talk less
Smile more
Don’t let them know what you’re against or what you’re for
