HEA STEM Strategies for Better Lectures – a workshop for European academic practitioners, 4 June 2014, Brussels, Belgium

A didactic 50 minute lecture that seeks only to transmit information to a generally passive audience is rarely the most effective way to facilitate learning. Contact time with students is an increasingly precious resource and there are now many examples of the more effective use of this time within higher education. This workshop will highlight strategies to give better lectures, offer examples of best practice, and provide a forum in which university teachers who are considering more innovative approaches can explore their ideas.
