Susan Lister of Nipissing University asks, Do Podcasts Justify the Lecture Method of Teaching?:
I thought the only ones keeping lecturing alive as a viable teaching method were traditionalists who had no interest in applying alternative learning modes.
Then along comes a medium that attempts to mate dinosaurs and virtual pets. Is podcasting causing a revival in the lecture method? But we barely got to see a glimpse of constructivism in the lecture hall and co-operative learning methods were just poking their heads in the door! Now we’re back to information delivery.
