Advantages & Disadvantages of Lecturing. (n.d.). Retrieved from: http://www.southalabama.edu/languages/spanish/TRG/TRG/Enhancing_Learning/Lecturing/advantages.htm
This source shows advantages and disadvantages of lecturing, particularly in a college setting. It shows that lecturing puts students in a passive role because they aren’t able to be active and interact with discussion. Students who attend lectures are only learning one-way communication. The lecturer isn’t making sure that the students comprehend the content that requires the lecturer to learn more effective skills such as communication. The advantages of lectures show that the lecturer is in control with the pace and direction of the topic but also the organization and the content. Lectures give out a lot of information in a short time due to the fact that students are encouraged to take notes and not engage or interact in discussion.
