I can’t lose lecture. The skills I teach necessarily involve modeling, questioning, and transmission. There are those who insist lecture is per se irrelevant and self-obsessed, but theirs is a reductive, useless line of inquiry. For my part in this collaborative disquisition on the future of learning, I can’t take any participant seriously who would volunteer an entire medium (TV, for example) or tool (lecture, PowerPoint, etc) to the gallows.
- So what does good lecturing look like in the 21st century?
- How can 21st-century tools — an entry-level digital projector, let’s say — enrich lecturing?
