The Public Lecture as an Instrument of Science Education for Adults--The Case of Great Britain, C. 1750-1850.
Inkster, Ian
Paedagogica Historica, v20 n1 p80-107 1980
The public science lecture, popular from the 1750s until the 1850s when a social revolution produced a class bound society, has played an important part in the genesis of modern scientific British education. Reasons include factors such as motivation and teaching methods which made audiences very receptive. (RM)
