Lectures can be an effective way to convey a lot of information in a short time, but just because a teacher says something doesn’t mean a student learns it. In this session we will explore the purpose of lectures, your own positive and negative experiences with lectures, strategies for creating, delivering, and assessing lectures generated by both bi-co faculty and students across the divisions and disciplines, and your hopes for and concerns about yourself as a lecturer.

In this session we will pull together the various ideas and practices we have explored over the course of the semester. Please come prepared to share (1) What you have done or seen done that has been (a) effective and (b) ineffective in establishing a constructive learning environment in a class and (2) Some thoughts on how you would draw on the different concepts and approaches we have explored in our sessions to create the kind of learning environment you want in your classroom.
