For most of us, lecturing is a familiar venue. It's the one kind of teaching that has been modeled for us over and over. Still, crafting a lecture for today’s learners is challenging. Lectures should be developed carefully with consideration for session goals and objectives, learners’ prior knowledge, learner engagement, and even modality as many of the lectures at the Perelman School of Medicine are recorded. If you are lecturing medical students in the pre-clinical curriculum, don’t be surprised or disappointed if attendance at your lecture is low. You can assume students will be reviewing your presentation via a video system called MediaSite that displays the presenter and presenter slides simultaneously.
