Enhancing the Lecture: Revitalizing the Traditional Format.
Bonwell, Charles C.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n67 p31-44 Fall 1996
The traditional lecture format of college courses can be enhanced by including active learning designed to further course goals of learning knowledge, developing skills, or fostering attitudes. Techniques suggested include using pauses, short writing periods, think-pair-share activities, formative quizzes, lecture summaries, and several assessment techniques. Use of Bloom's taxonomy to develop activities at the appropriate level is discussed. (MSE)
