Is the lecture an outmoded teaching method that inhibits active learning, or is it a potentially powerful tool that is an essential part of every teacher’s repertoire? This book presents up-to-date research on the different types of lecture, on what constitutes effective lecturing, and on the impact of lecturing when done appropriately and well. Christine Harrington and Todd Zakrajsek demonstrate that, rather than lecture and active learning being mutually exclusive or either-or propositions, the effectiveness of the former can be greatly enhanced when combined with active learning techniques through what they define as dynamic lecturing. They present a range of strategies that enhance student learning during lectures and conclude with practical suggestions for quick application in the classroom.
Participants receive a complementary copy of the book and commit to attending all sessions.
