How to Make Lectures More Effective
This is a discussion on how to make lectures more effective.
Making a lecture fun and interactive is the best solution to ensure that all learners understand all the contents being taught. In any given lecture, these three ways of making lecture sessions are more fun and effective.
The first method is by use of random questions to your learners as a lecturer. Random questions are directed at random learners in lecture sessions. The importance of this method is that it prompts the students to follow the lecture sessions to the detail in order to understand and reply to the random answers asked by the lecturer. The advantage of asking random questions is that it will create an interactive atmosphere for learning.
The second way of making lectures more effective is to include technology in your lecture sessions. Technology will make learning easier as media content like videos, pictures and audio create a better mental grasp of the content under discussion. Contents illustrated through the use of videos for example will be easily remembered and will create fun in learning as compared to the traditional teaching method
Improve the practicability of your lectures other than just teaching theories. Lectures which involve practical illustrations leave the student at a better position in knowledge acquisition as compared to lectures where only the theory is taught. It is therefore important as a lecturer to include the practical parts of your lesson as it will physically and mentally involve the student in the topic under discussion.
In conclusion, applying these three effective ways of improving lectures in any environment will ensure that the audience or learners grasp a large percentage of what you taught. It is therefore advisable to practice these three methods in order to perfect them and be able to apply them in any situation.
