Lecturing more effectively – Simple techniques for improving lectures

Traditional lectures still have their place, even in the age of the flipped classroom and case-based learning. There are also a series of ways to augment lectures which – with minimal effort and using innovative elements – boost the efficiency of the associated teaching and learning process. These techniques provide variety and encourage students to become more active. This event presents a colorful palette of tried-and-tested ideas, and helps participants to try them out.
At the event you will have the opportunity to try out certain techniques right away.

Dr. Lukas Meier (D-MATH) will present an entertaining way to use the ETH EduApp, which involves groups of students competing in class to answer formative assessment questions. Students report that this is very motivating, and the method enhances the lecture.

Dr. Adrian Gilli (D-ERDW) and Pascal Schmidt (LET) will present evidence-based ways to make lectures more effective which include participatory learning activities, peer instruction, structuring of time and content, the role of feedback and the management of cognitive load.

We also cordially invite you to join us after the event for lunch in the course room, where you can exchange ideas with others.
