There are three activities in this resource, and they have been created around actual lectures delivered by staff at Royal Holloway, University of London, King’s College London and the University of Nottingham. Each lecture demonstrates different approaches to lecturing. The peer review activities are designed to prompt individuals or groups to begin thinking critically about what makes a good lecture/lecturer and what tools and tasks can help make a particular lecture more or less successful.
The activities in this resource, like the peer review activities elsewhere in this collection, are designed to prompt individuals or groups to begin thinking critically about what makes a good lecture/lecturer. Included are a mock ‘bad’ lecture to evaluate and an exercise in self-reflection on your own methods of delivering a lecture—are you more comfortable using an improvisational technique or do you write your lectures out word for word?
This collection of resources for English lecturers (and others) provides platforms and exercises through which to refine your ideas about what a lecture should and can do pedagogically. Included are examples of actual lectures, guidance on how to evaluate and reflect upon your own and other people's lectures, a mock ‘bad’ lecture and suggestions for how to stretch the limits of large-group teaching structures.
