Best of Bristol: The Demise of the Lecture?
Dr Steven Proud
Wills Memorial Building
Are we witnessing the death of the lecture?
Dr Steven Proud explores this question for the Best of Bristol series.
For the past 50 years, academics and commentators have repeatedly claimed that the lecture would soon be replaced with other forms of teaching, yet it still remains one of the dominant forms of information delivery in Universities.
This lecture will explore whether lectures remain relevant in an increasingly digital world, and how pedagogical techniques can be used within lectures to enable students to develop higher level skills.
This lecture is part of the Best of Bristol series - a free lecture series showcasing the most inspiring lecturers at University of Bristol, as voted for by Bristol students. There are eight lectures taking place across the series from 14 - 30 March. Find all the lectures on the Bristol SU website.
