How to Use Interactive Lecturing as Pedagogy of Engagement

Thusrday, October 3, 2019 | 1:00 PM Central | 60 Minutes

In recent years, lectures as a pedagogical approach have come under considerable fire. Critics have called lectures boring, obsolete, old-fashioned, overused, and even unfair. The criticisms, however, are often leveled at one type of lecture: the full-session, transmission-model lecture. Still, there is another type of lecture that has tried and true benefits: the interactive lecture. This seminar will detail interactive lecturing, a model for combining lectures and active learning techniques in a way that can engage students and improve their learning. By watching this program, you will gain practical and actionable ideas and creative approaches to a comfortable method. With the use of interactive lecturing, you will gain improved learning in the classroom.
