I heard from this podcast about how Dr. Cecilia Conrad was advised to, instead of making her lectures too clear, “fill the board with calculus” to establish her credential for students who thought she was an “affirmative action hire”.

I know plenty people, my past self included, who are natural board-calculus fillers by overwhelming technical communications such as research papers and presentations with math/algorithm details, and need to reverse what Dr. Cecilia Conrad did.
