Eric Mazur: confessions of a converted lecturer
From the Presentation Zen blog, this article about a Harvard Physicist who changed his teaching:
Dr. Mazur's approach: (1) Students read the notes and appropriate section of books, etc. before coming to class. "I am not going to lecture on the notes anymore," Mazur says. (2) In the classroom what matters is going deeper. "What's important is depth not coverage."
