LECTURING EFFECTIVELY: BORROWING FROM THE THEORIES OF TEACHING AND LEARNING A REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Syed Hammad Hassan, Ayesha Aslam, Zahid Hussain Shah, Muhammad Luqman.

Abstract
Lectures are still one of the most commonly employed learning and teaching aid used in medical and dental schools throughout the world. However, they may not be the most interactive and participative teaching method. The educational literature is replete with suggestions on how the lectures can be structured and made more interactive so as to encourage conceptual learning. The desire to find evidence based approach backed by sound principles of teaching and learning led us to review different theories of teaching and learning and their usefulness in making lectures more learner-centered. To accomplish purposeful learning of our students, we need to take that humanistic leap from being a mechanized lecturer to the role of a facilitator. The principal focus should be to encourage students to learn by reading, listening, questioning and reflecting.

Key words: Education, Lectures, Learning, Lecture Interactivity.
