- In the context of this wiki, this entry refers to lecturing in higher education (1 teacher plus many students).
Lecturing is not just content delivery:
- The lecture has to preparred according some simple or more complicated instructional design method, e.g. backwards design. This includes activities outside the lecture hall (homework, labs, ..)
- There are different appropriate instructional design models such as direct instruction and nine events of instruction.
We also should make a distinction between lecturing as "telling" (i.e. as pedagogic method of presentation) to be combined with other methods and lecturing as global pedagogic strategy and that includes exhibits, demonstrations, question/response interactions, small student activities, etc.
- Technology-enhanced classroom (for ICT use in usually smaller classrooms)
2 Instructional design models for lecturing
See also: Computer-integrated_classroom. There exist tools to make lecturing with many students more interactive.
- Presentation software (all sorts, e.g. powerpoint)
- Interactive demonstrations with software (e.g. simulations)
- Voting and question management systems (via student's notebooks and mobile devices)
- Overlay techniques, e.g. with a whiteboard or a tablet PC
- Teacher uses "half-baked" teaching materials and adds things
- Teacher can blend in student contributions (votes, questions, etc.)
