Digitization has disrupted the traditional lecture. Our students have smartphones, they can watch lectures on YouTube, sign up for online classes…
Does it even make sense to keep on giving lectures live?
It does. But we need to say goodbye to a one-way information broadcast.
In the classroom, we have to empower students to take on an active role in their learning.
How can you do that?
Instead of talking at your students for an hour (or more!), let them actively interact with your content. Give them the opportunity to ask questions, have discussions, share ideas.
In this short ebook, you’ll learn how to create two-way conversations during your lectures and actively engage your students by means of live polling and simple facilitation techniques.
So get yourself comfortable and let’s take your lectures into a brighter future together.
