About Active learning in large classes

Presented by Associate Professor Jason Lodge.

The lecture remains widely used in university contexts; however, an effective lecture is much more than just a didactic information session.

An imaginative and integrative lecture with clear learning goals enables student learning. This course offers practical guidelines for effective lecturing, including ways to evaluate the lecture and student learning.

This course will enable participants to: 

1. identify the features of effective and ineffective lectures/lecturers
2. consider the role of the lecture within a whole of course context
3. consider strategies for creating imaginative, integrative and engaging lectures
4. evaluate the effectiveness of their lectures
5. enable students learning.
