The Future of the Lecture: Abolition or Paradigm Shift?

The Future of the Lecture: Abolition or Paradigm Shift?
The challenge faced by ‘the lecture’ of the future is its balance between imparting knowledge and facilitating
active learning. In this presentation from Blended Learning 2016, Dr Chris Thompson, Associate Dean (Education) & Senior Lecturer at Monash University, explores how this current shift
in culture is impacting on student learning, inlcuding:
  • Does the traditional, didactic lecture still have a place in higher education?
  • How a lecture in 2020 look different might compared to 20 years earlier?
  • Is ‘flipped learning’ the right model for large undergraduate cohorts?
