Lecturing is the most frequent type of large group teaching. This type of teaching may be the most difficult type of teaching and possibly the least effective way to teach. Nevertheless, it remains one of the most common ways to reach groups of learners. Lecturing requires pre-planning based on who the audience will be, what goals you have for the session, and thinking about teaching strategies you might use. The second step is developing your presentation and the final step is to develop your script and ask for feedback from others.
