Are Lectures Effective? What the Research Can and Cannot Tell Us

Josh Eyler
Director, Center for Teaching Excellence

The debate about whether or not to lecture in the classroom is a perennial one in higher education. But what do we actually mean when we talk about lectures, and where does lecturing fit into the conversation about evidence-based teaching strategies? Join us to find out what the research says about lecturing and to discuss different perspectives on the practice.

This event is open to all within the Rice community. Pizza will be served.
