Investigate and design the optimal flow of the contents and delivery forms of a lecture. Structure the content of a lecture so that it optimally supports students’ learning and that all dependencies of content parts are taken into account.
This pattern is a more concrete variation of Seminar Plan. If you have a plan, then you should also consider to Reference the Planduring the lecture. Sometimes some unexpected events might occur, then you should consider to Let the Plan Go if that is better for students’ learning.
Probably the most important thing regarding lecture structuring is the splitting of the lecture content into Digestible PacketsThe goal of this splitting is to increase the learning effect of a lecture and to ensure an appropriate handling of attention loss.
