Giving Effective Lectures

Chuck Stull
Kalamazoo College

New to Kalamazoo? I've put together a webpage with some basic information about Kalamazoo and another with outdoor activities around the area.

Lectures are effective for teaching many concepts, but not for everything. Here are a few alternatives.

1. Quiz

2. Simulations

3. Teaching Technologies

Good links

Standford University's handbook, "Teaching at Stanford," has an excellent section on lecturing, and helpful advice on discussions, grading, technology, etc.

Two good sites on presentation techniques: Effective Presentations and Presenting Solutions.

Good lectures aren't boring

Effective Lectures

1. clarity

2. energy

3. Variety: breaking the monotony

4. Experiment
