Eric Mazur’s Lecture: The Tyranny of the Lecture

On May 6th, I was very fortunate to attend a public lecture hosted by the UBC Centre of Teaching Learning and Technology. This public lecture “The Tyranny of the Lecture” ¬†featured a Harvard Professor Eric Mazur who for the last thirty years pioneers various interactive engagement pedagogies and developed the technologies that can enable them. Prof. Mazur is well known in the field of Physics Education Research for his Peer Instruction pedagogy that used clickers to engage large groups of students in large introductory physics courses. UBC Department of Physics and Astronomy has been using clickers for almost 20 years now. This time Professor Mazur came up with another very interesting technology – Bring Your Own Device and we can interact with you via these devices. However, this lecture was NOT about technology – it was about the pedagogy… I would strongly recommend you to watch it. I am sure you will enjoy it.
