I’ve written before how I avoid lecturing.
Instead of trying to give students the answers, which lecturing does, I try to give them experiences that will lead them to discover the answers for themselves. Instead of organizing a syllabus around the how to order presenting information, I organize it around exercises and projects.
I find that when students discovers an answer, they remember it longer, know how to apply it, and feel more motivated to continue.
