Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  


Session 4: The Art of Lecturing


The lecture mode is the oldest teaching method; however, when compared to other teaching methods, it is often not as effective in areas such as student retention of information, transfer of knowledge, and problem-solving.  The traditional lecture method is the most widely used across the world (Smith & Valentine, 2012).  In this interactive session, we will explore ways and conditions under which the lecture method can be more effective; e.g., in its preparation and organization, delivery, and student-learning checkpoints.


This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
