effective lecture | Education homework help
Svinicki and McKeachie (2014) state, “Effective lectures combine the talents of scholar, writer, producer, comedian, entertainer, and teacher in ways that contribute to student learning” (p. 58). Imagine you are hired to present a lecture to a group of adult learners on any topic that is of personal or professional interest.
For this assignment you will be (1) creating an outline of your lecture notes and (2) a narrative description of your lecture presentation. First, choose a subject that is of interest to you and prepare your lecture notes. For this assignment, your lecture notes must be in a Word document in outline format. You may include cue words or phrases, or form your notes as a series of questions. The lecture outline must include the following information:
- Graphic representation
- Procedural directions
In addition to the outline, you must include a narrative that describes the educational setting, how you will check for student understanding, how you will use examples, maintain student attention, and how you will engage students in actively thinking about the content presented. As with the Week One assignment, your narrative can be in a format of your choice such as a Word document, video, slide presentation or another layout of your choosing. Although there is no page or length requirement for this assignment to allow creative freedom, make sure that you have fully addressed all the required topics listed above, using the textbook and at least one additional source to support your answers. Be sure to cite your sources appropriately both in-text and separate reference page in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
