Rocky Mountain report #4

After Terry Phelps's plenary talk on the ethics of storytelling, I was fortunate to share a timeslot with John Mollenkamp and Michelle Whelan of Cornell, who spoke on worst-case scenario survival tips:  how to deal with no-show guest speakers (technology, back-up speakers, panels instead of solo speakers, etc.), recalcitrant technology (hotline to the IT folks, back-up plan, back-up technology, etc.), and the like.

I spoke on being a perfectionist:  recognizing and diagnosing perfectionism and identifying areas where 100% is important (class preparation, complete research b'4 assigning a fact pattern) and areas where 90% will do (minute details of a fact pattern, amount of comments on a draft).
