  • Ten Secrets to Better Lecturing

    01/03/2021 Duración: 45min

    One of the most commonly-used forms of instruction in academic classrooms is the lecture.  Loved by some, hated by others, it's been a part of the educator's toolbox for hundreds of years, and that isn't likely to change soon.  And, for that matter, there is nothing wrong with lecturing-- particularly if one is a good lecturer and assuming it's not overused to the point that learners disengage from the educational process. So whether a professor uses lecture seldomly or frequently, when he or she does-- it is important that the lecture is educationally potent and pedagogically powerful.  To achieve that, listen to this podcast episode and learn more about the secrets of better lecturing, in hopes that you will connect with the elusive "teaching moment"-- where students are forever changed by the impact of an effective teacher.

  • Episode 38, Christianity

    05/03/2016 Duración: 01h34min

    Christianity is the world's largest religion with over 2 Billion professing believers.  Christianity developed from the Jewish faith, with Jesus of Nazareth, a Jew, being identified as the Messiah of the World.  Christianity spread rapidly, ultimately becoming the official religion of the Roman Empire, in addition to spreading into the Eastern Hemisphere.  This made Christianity global, as it spread to all continents.  Christianity has three major divisions, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant.  In this podcast, these movements and the essential beliefs of Evangelical Christianity are discussed, along with points of contrast and comparison between biblical concepts and the teachings of other religions.  The conclusion is that, contrary to popular belief, Christianity does not teach the same thing as other religions and that the different religions communicate completely different concepts of God that force people to decide which, if any, faith is true and should be followed.             Christ
