Dynamic Lecturing: Research-Based Strategies to Enhance Effectiveness

February 7, 2018, 1:00pm
Although lecturing has been demonized over the past several years, it continues to be one of the most frequently used strategies in higher education. Faculty may well be critiqued for using this “tainted and antiquated approach.” In comparing active learning to lecturing, flaws in the interpretation of current literature have resulted in misconceptions about the value of lecturing. In this session, we will critique foundational studies, examine components of the effective lecture, and integrate lectures with other educational strategies to create even more meaningful learning experiences for our students.
