Professor Richard Devlin was chosen as one of the winners of Dal's "Change One Thing Challenge" -- a contest celebrating engaging ways of teaching that make a positive impact on student learning in a course.

Richard's winning exercise, used in his Professional Responsibility class, asks students to quickly sketch pictures about different perceptions of lawyers. The sketches prove an illuminating way to illustrate issues surrounding one's professional and ethical identity as a lawyer.

Richard will present on this idea at the Conference on Teaching and Learning in May.
