Does your instructing give your students the Blah blah’s???

It’s been widely discussed that lessons that involve a lot of lecturing are not very effective in an adult learning environment. I found a very interesting U-Tube video that talks about how lecturing can cause learners to tune out and not retain any information. The author promotes activity based learning and keeping the students involved by doing group work and at times utilizing them to help teach their peers. He refers to lecturing as Blah Blah Blah. I actually had a student tell me that when I talk that’s all he hears so this video really caught my attention.

Please view the video 🙂
