Lawler, Ellen M.; Chen, X. Mara; Venso, Elichia A.
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v7 n2 p32-48 Oct 2007
The increased use of instructional technology in the past decade has brought about many changes in college teaching, including changes in the lecture format. We surveyed students in six science courses to obtain their opinions regarding technology use, as well as non-technological instructional techniques, and the characteristics of outstanding teachers. This article reports on and analyzes the responses of 158 students, and recommends strategies instructors can use to increase their teaching effectiveness by engaging students in lecture and other aspects of their courses.
