Finally, a book that lifts lecturing out of the land of ill-repute and positions it squarely in the midst of active learning strategies. Harrington and Zakrajsek present a plethora of simple strategies, based on numerous research studies, that will actively engage students in learning. This is a must read for faculty who want to use lecturing as a tool to improve studentsaEURO (TM) critical thinking and problem solving skills."" aEURO" Saundra McGuire, Director Emerita, Center for Academic Success, Louisiana State University

""Headline news! Students can learn from lectures! This is Harrington and ZakrajsekaEURO (TM)s convincing, evidence-based argument. Their book is the first one on lecturing since BlighaEURO (TM)s fifth edition of WhataEURO (TM)s the Use of Lectures? published back in 1998. Academia really needs Dynamic Lecturing, especially because the lecture is still the most popular teaching method around. So letaEURO (TM)s stop trashing it and just do it well by 'accessorizing' it in some of the many low-effort ways Harrington and Zakrajsek recommend."" aEURO" Linda B. Nilson, Director Emeritus, Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation, Clemson University
