Synopsis

Tried and tested tips for creating dynamic lectures and presentations that students will remember

Lectures remain a staple form of teaching in higher and professional education, yet presenting doesn't come naturally to most people. This handbook provides practical suggestions, each tried and tested, for developing effective lectures and presentations across all disciplines. The authors cover the full presentation process, from structuring the lecture to use of illustrations and technology, techniques to attract and sustain student attention, active learning strategies, and dealing with questions. Whether one is new to lecturing and training and eager to develop good presentation technique, or more experienced and looking to expand an established repertoire, this handy guide offers plenty of helpful ideas.

Excerpt

The original edition of 53 interesting things to do in your lectures was published in a series called ‘Interesting ways to teach’. It was written by Sue Habeshaw, Graham Gibbs and Trevor Habeshaw – all of them experienced teachers – and published by their company, Technical and Educational Services. The book proved popular amongst peers in post-compulsory education and ran to several editions.

Now that the original authors have retired from teaching, we are very pleased to have acquired from them the rights to this and other titles from that series. Much of the original material remains fresh and helpful. We have, however, revised and updated the text where appropriate. In four places (items 10, 14, 30 and 36), the original text has been replaced wholesale.
