Redesigning the Lecture
A recent report on "Redesigning Large Lecture Courses" may sound familiar to those who remember the Pew Program in Course Redesign from the nineties, which I wrote about in this paper several years ago. Now the emphasis is on the so-called "hybrid learning" that I was an advocate for rather than abandoning lecture courses or turning them into vehicles for distance learning, which some Pew acolytes were advocates for. The Pew Redesign project has left many dead educational websites behind like this one. Let us hope that this decade's redesigners won't leave so much abandoned virtual real estate behind.
