Professor Mika Presents at Rocky Mountain Regional Conference

karin_mika_2014_219Professor Karin Mika presented at the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference, which took place on March 6th and 7th at the University of New Mexico School of Law.  Professor Mika’s presentation was entitled “Does Size Really Matter? Intangibles as Affecting Course Evaluations as Well as Learning.”  Despite the provocative title, the presentation was about how various factors of the classroom — room size, class size, gender distribution, alpha students, etc. — affect perceptions of competency and what can be achieved in the classroom (both positively and negatively).  The discussion focused on what variables can be controlled and what, if anything, can be done when negative variables exist.
