The lecture spectre. Susan Ryland, Imperial College, London.
The spectral trace of the ‘old school’ university lecture still lurks in its favourite haunting: the lecture theatre. Here, massed students are constrained both physically and mentally – their dead-eyed stares a stark reminder of just how uncaptivated a captive audience can be. This paper reviews an action research project with first year Fine Art and Arts and Media students that explores the use of collage in lecture note-taking. The premise being that collage note-taking might offer a transformative rather than transmissive approach to teaching and learning, thereby helping students build essential cognitive connections between theory and practice.
