Professor tries improving lectures by removing them from class | Inside Higher Ed | Learning Spaces | Scoop.it

A story of how an academic on the ground is engaging with lectures and how to adapt them in support of student learning.

 

In essence he:

 

1. gives his lectures alone, at home, on his own time, into a microphone.
2. edits the lectures into shorter mini-lectures, ranging from 5 to 29 minutes.
3. posts the lectures to Central Michigan’s iTunes U site, along with accompanying
    PowerPoint slides.
4. instructs his students to listen to one or more of the mini-lectures in preparation for
    each class.
5. uses clickers to quiz students on the concepts covered at the beginning of each class.
6. for the rest of the class he typically divides students into teams and asks them to
    apply those concepts to specific cases.

 

"Rather than pushing information at students, it might be better to use it in a way that helps them with higher-level learning."
