Students' Perception of Live Lectures' Inherent Disadvantages
Petrovic, Juraj; Pale, Predrag
Teaching in Higher Education, v20 n2 p143-157 2015
This paper aims to provide insight into various properties of live lectures from the perspective of sophomore engineering students. In an anonymous online survey conducted at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, we investigated students' opinions regarding lecture attendance, inherent disadvantages of live lecture as a teaching method, lecture interactivity, and the importance of different types of learning materials. The findings derived from students' reported data suggest that students are well aware of a number of limitations of live lectures as a teaching method, yet despite that awareness, it rarely affects their decision to attend live lectures or not. Implications of the findings for live lectures are addressed in the paper, as well as recommendations for future research.
