IDEA#11 Field Lecture
 Overview Pages:36-39
"Changing where a class meets and a lecture occurs holds the potential to have a positive impact on a student’s experience and learning. The Field Lecture IDEA means holding mini-lecture in a location that is relevant to the course content being taught. It means capitalising on the moment during a field trip to be able to provide pertinent information to student on a need-to-know basis. For example, if an instructor is teaching a course on criminal courts and judicial processes, having class at the local courthouse presents an opportunity to observe what is going on and provide a brief lecture to solidify content being presented to students. In this way, the lecture occurs in a real-world and course-relevant context.The Field Lecture IDEA allows for students to get on-the-spot information and likely see first-hand how the knowledge they are gaining is, or can be, applied in the real world. Additionally, the change of venue from a typical classroom setting can help promote a more informal learning environment that can increase student interactions with each other and the instructor." — Teaching for Learning, Major CH, Harris MS, Zakrajsek T, 2016
