Lecturing for Student Learning

Posted on: May 24th, 2011 | by: Fox Public Relations | no comments

TLC Webinar

Facilitator: Pamela Barnett, Associate Vice Provost & Director, TLC

Details: The best lectures can impart information, and model for students how an expert organizes information and considers disciplinary questions. Yet student attention wanders periodically during an uninterrupted 50 minute lecture, no matter how well-crafted and delivered. Fortunately, the lecture can be made more interactive, intellectually engaging, and likely to promote student wakefulness and learning (Gross Davis, 2009; Huxham, 2005). Webinar viewers will gain knowledge of research-based strategies for lecturing effectively.
