Mika Suggests Classroom Innovation Be a Retreat from Technology

C|M|LAW Legal Writing Professor Karin Mika presented “Angst, Technology, and Innovation” at the Legal Writing Institute One Day Workshop,  at the University of Oregon School of Law, on December 6, 2013.  She argued that today’s student is hindered by the angst of everyday life, which is exacerbated by always being connected to responsibilities by way of technology.  She suggested that innovation in the classroom should be retreating from technology and using more physical handouts to reinforce points made verbally or on screen.  She suggested that innovation in the classroom should involve doing more exercises that take students away from using technology.
