In past years, educators of adults have pushed hard for learning to become more active, more interactive, and more self-directed. Some have come to think that lecture has no place in adult education. The reality is that a well-done lecture can be quite powerful, an excellent tool in the adult educator’s toolbox. Indeed, there are times when it’s the best tool to use. When might lecture be the go-to tool for the adult educator? Professor Thomas Kock shows us how we can still make use of lecture as another option in our teaching.
Professor Thomas Kock serves as professor of education and Old Testament at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin. He previously served as a home missionary and pastor in Johnson City, Tennessee.
