Abstract

Limited contact time in the traditional lecture structure poses a challenge for the lecturer to select the depth of material covered in the lecture while ensuring complete coverage of the syllabus. In the case of large groups, this also restricts the time that can be dedicated for enquiry based learning and active engagement with the students. This lack of enquiry based learning is cited as one of the main disadvantages of traditional lectures as a teaching strategy (Cashin 1985). Furthermore, due to the diverse learning abilities of the students some concepts are very basic for a subset of the class and they lose their focus if they feel that trivial points are being discussed in a session.

Technology provides a potential solution to this dilemma. One-way delivery of material can be provided in the form of a video or online presentation prior to actual contact session intended to cover a topic. The students can go through the material in advance and come prepared in the session to clarify their understanding using the enquiry-based-learning methods. An additional benefit is that the material remains available for the students for later reinforcement of their learning/understanding and also for the revision before a formative or summative assessment. This material can also be improved over time, based on student feedback and requests. In this article, we investigated how effective this mode of teaching/learning can be in traditional series of lectures by running experiments with postgraduate (PG) students at the University of Surrey.
