Why do 60% of students find their lectures boring? - 0 views

  •  
    Article in the Guardian Education about why students find lectures boring. Unsurprisingly, PowerPoint is mentioned as a factor although reading further it's the usual story of the inappropriate use of PowerPoint rather than the existance of Powerpoint itself. I went to some extremely tedious lectures during my degree...it is possible to bore with a blackboard too! I would be interested in seeing more details of the types of lecture that students actually *like*!
