“My lecturing was ineffective, despite the high evaluations.”
“The traditional approach to teaching reduces education to a transfer of information.”
– Dr. Eric Mazur

Dr. Eric Mazur is a Harvard Professor of Physics and Applied Physics who talks about his “confessions of a converted lecturer”. He focuses on the power of peer teaching and the ineffectiveness of the traditional lecture format in a classroom.

This talk is 72 minutes long. Take some time to listen and learn. Dr. Mazur is such an engaging talk that I couldn’t stop watching. Maybe it’s because he looks a little like the comedian Steve Carell.

“The plural of ANECDOTE is not DATA.”
— Dr. Lee Shulman (ex-President of The Carnegie Foundation)
