Forum: The Lecture and Student Learning. The Lecture and the Learning Paradigm
Darling, Ann
Communication Education, v66 n2 p253-255 2017
The essays in this forum demonstrate how the shift from an instructional to a learning paradigm is in full motion and is happening in scholarly conversations about communication and instruction. When asked about the role of the lecture in today's educational context, responses varied from some form of "none at all" to "the lecture is here to stay and for good reasons." What is important is that each essay is grounded in an argument about student learning. In this response, the author summarizes what are, in her opinion, the primary contributions of each essay and offers ideas for questions that might be productively pursued. [Other articles in this forum include: The Lecture's Absent Audience (EJ1132073); The Lost Art of Lecturing: Cultivating Student Listening and Notetaking (EJ1132054); Lecture and Active Learning as a Dialectical Tension (EJ1132004); What Is the Place of Lecture in Student Learning Today?
