The future of lectures

Also in last week Higher - a longer article on lectures, which relates to something that came up in our PG Certificate in Academic Practice induction last week - the problem of providing adequate facilities for teaching larger and larger groups and raising issues about whether we shouldn't be thinking about alternative delivery modes more rather than following Essex in building 1,000 seat lecture theater's!

The other issue - whatever the format is the problem of institutions responding to fluctuations in student numbers in different courses effectively and therefore using the resources more efficiently.
