Anyone Still Listening? Educators Consider Killing the Lecture

 

“Teachers are wrong to assume that their role is only to convey information, and that merely saying the magic words will translate into learning for their students” – “our students can access lots of information really efficiently now online, probably more efficiently than we could ever relay it…so the added value of interactions with faculty should be talking through difficult concepts, refining difficult decision-making, and otherwise doing the challenging stuff that can’t be done with a laptop or phone.”   Overall, an interesting point-counterpoint among faculty members who cling to “sage on stage”  lecture and its merit vs. those who are using newer pedagogical models.  On Mindshift.
