In recent years there has been much debate about the role and value of lectures in our teaching. Is it possible to deliver a lecture and still be learning-centered in your pedagogical approach? Are lectures ineffective? Might lectures even discriminate against certain groups of students? We will read three short articles to inform our discussion of this topic: from The Atlantic: Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “The Art of the College Lecture,” and from the New York Times: Annie Murphy Paul’s “Are College Lectures Unfair?” and Molly Worthen’s “Lecture me. Really.”
