Does this look familiar to you? Unfortunately the “lecture” is still common place in many classrooms. Yet….
Lectures are great for getting students to repeat information but they are one of the worst teaching strategies for promoting in-depth understanding….It would be difficult to find a model worse than the one used for teaching in most institutions. (Halpern & Hakel, 2003).
Student affairs folks are often trained on learning styles and theory yet when it comes to facilitating staff training, many of us retreat to “the lecture.” We need to get HIP with our training!
Join me at the NASPA Western Regional conference where I will review what high impact practices are, why they are important, provide strategies for making training active and for using technology for active learning.
