Todd Zakrajsek shares about his new book Dynamic Lecturing on episode 159 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.
Quotes from the episode
You can’t just take bad examples of something and claim that the whole concept is bad.
If bad teaching were considered a crime, I think we’ve arrested the wrong suspect.
We always have to be mindful of how attentive the audience is at any given moment.
I can’t find any evidence that says lecturing is bad.
