And a thought on preparing lectures

If you are a perfectionist like me, then for every 1 and half hours, try to under prepare by about 15 minutes to allow for more discussion (every grain in my being resists this!)

If you are a get-by-on-minimum sort, repent and do some research!

I say skip the multimedia, skip the splitting up into group discussions, skip the ad hoc comments and small-talk and basically read a paper for 2.5hrs, leaving the final half hour for discussion. That is the sort of lecture I enjoy attending (and the sort of lecture I try to present). Content should always trump presentation, people are not as dumb as presenters tend to think they are (visual culture, short attention span, blah, blah, blah), and those who actually want to learn will do so.

I am with you on this one, by the way.
