Module 8: The Art and Science of Effective Lecturing


Lecture is the most common method for teaching and it is also the most criticized. The strength of lecture is efficiency—one person presenting to almost unlimited numbers of learners. Lecture does not provide the depth of understanding that small groups provide nor does lecture attain the higher levels of learning in Bloom’s Taxonomy. The dubious reputation of the lecture method stems more from the ineptitude of the presenter than from the method itself.

Lecture can be especially effective if the experiences of the speaker are key ingredients.
