What's the Use of Lectures?
In one of the highest selling books on higher/further education to date, Bligh begins by arguing that lectures are most suitable for teaching information, not promoting thought or inspiring changes in attitudes.
He goes on to detail the factors that affect the learning of information. The text is formed around a thorough consideration of the techniques of lecturing, including organization, how to make a point, use handouts, and obtain feedback, but it moves beyond lecturing to discuss alternatives when they are appropriate.

I actually have the printed edition of this book, dated 1972. Owing to the critical reviews, I was tempted to open the book again. I'm glad I did
Table 8 shows a variety of teaching methods and their best use. Only a small set is focused on 'imparting information' . Other primary objectives include Empathy, Problem Solving, Manual skills, Attitude change, 'Critical' thinking, Observation, Vocational skills and so on.
I think that it is a grave disservice to this book to say that it is only about imparting information. It is about far more than that.
Although the book is old, a surprising large % of it is still highly relevant today.
