Lectures & the critique of university teaching | University Affairs

Lectures & the critique of university teaching | University Affairs | The Role of the Lecture in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"I’m rather tired of seeing a certain kind of argument about university teaching being repeated over and over of late. In this argument, the lecture is set up as a “straw person” version of university teaching, and it’s then knocked down by assertions about the superior flexibility and convenience of the Internet and various forms of tech-mediated learning. I think there’s a lot of missing context for this argument, so I’m going to try to outline some of that here."

Linda Corrin's insight:

An interesting consideration of the rhetoric around lectures...

Fluent instruction no more effective than poor delivery in teaching terms
Linda Corrin's insight:

Interesting findings that challenge students' perceptions about entertaining lectures - but let's hope this doesn't discourage lecturers from improving their delivery. This article suggests that interaction is in the key to improving learning in lectures.

Students prefer good lectures over the latest technology in class | University Affairs

Students prefer good lectures over the latest technology in class | University Affairs | The Role of the Lecture in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"University students prefer the “old school” approach of an engaging lecture over the use of the latest technological bells and whistles in the classroom. That was a finding in a recent study of the perceptions of students and professors in Quebec on the use of information and communications technologies, or ICTs, in higher learning."

Linda Corrin's insight:

An interesting article which challenges the assumption that students prefer alternate delivery models to the traditional lecture. However, students emphasise that the quality of the lecture is important in terms of engagement and stimulation.
