Christensen's own mastery of discussion leading provides a powerful model for anyone involved in this difficult mode of teaching.
Much can be learned about a good lecture by observing Michael Sandel, a Professor of Government at Harvard whose course, "Justice";, regularly enrolls more than 700 students. The Art of the Lecture follows three of Sandel's elegant, articulate, and thought-provoking lectures in which he involves students in their own learning by asking questions and facilitating student debates, despite the large class size.
As he explores classical and contemporary moral and political philosophy with his students, Professor Sandel shows how a traditional lecture style can be successfully combined with more interactive approach to teaching on a grand scale.
