Attend a Lecture
A lecture is an oral presentation intended to teach people about a particular subject, for example by a university or college teacher. Lectures are used to convey critical information, history, background, theories and equations. A politician's speech, a minister's sermon, or even a businessman's sales presentation may be similar in form to a lecture. Usually the lecturer will stand at the front of the room and recite information relevant to the lecture's content.
Though lectures are much criticized, universities have not yet found practical alternative teaching methods for the large majority of their courses. Critics see lecturing as a one-way method of communication, which does not involve significant audience participation. Lecturing is often contrasted to active learning. But lectures have nevertheless survived in academia, mainly as a quick, cheap and efficient way of introducing large numbers of students to a particular field of study.
