Some Hints on How To Be an Effective Lecturer. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 6.
The art of lecturing is examined in detail and suggestions are offered on how to lecture in an effective manner. The first of two main sections deals with the preparation of lectures, offering guidance on such matters as determining the objectives, choosing the content, planning the structure, deciding on the method of delivery, and preparing supportive materials. The second section discusses lecturing technique per se and provides advice on orienting students at the start of a lecture, communicating effectively with students, holding students' attention, making sure that students obtain adequate notes, and ending a lecture. An annotated list of four references recommended for further reading is included. (MES)
