So You Think You Need to Lecture

Wednesday, February 27, 2019
1:10 PM - 2:00 PM

Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


In this workshop, we will look at lecture in two different ways: as something to be avoided and something to be utilized. We will discuss research on lectures, active learning techniques, and alternatives to lecture in both the online and face-to-face classrooms. We will then discuss the best ways to utilize lecture as a content delivery method and ways to incorporate active learning into the lecture itself.
