    1. A large portion of this book is dedicated to presenting research on why and how lectures fail.

    2. كتاب ذو قيمة, خاصة لمن يعمل في المجال الأكاديمي. من التساؤلات المهمة التي يطرحها الكاتب و يناقشها هي ما الغرض من المحاضرة؟ يمكن القول, انه بشكل عام, هناك اربع اهداف اساسية تحاول اي مؤسسة اكاديمية تحقيقها لطلابها و هي: 1- ايصال المعلومة2- تطوير طريقة التفكير3- تغيير الشخصية4- تغيي [...]
