Hi guys!

I'm a fairly new nursing instructor and still learning the best way to do a traditional lecture that students can learn from. I was wondering what everyone else's lecture style is like, including if you post notes or hand outs for students to follow along with.

Currently I lecture using powerpoint. Our institution does not want us to post our powerpoint slides for the students to have, so many instructors have posted what is basically their powerpoint sides in word format with blanks here and there for students to fill in. I've done this before, but I was wondering if there was something else someone may be doing that their students enjoy. 

Thanks in advance!

I’m curious as to why it is not recommended to post powerpoints for students to follow along with? I post the form PowerPoint and then the note version for students to follow along with as well. When I attended an Instructor Skills Workshop they recommended posting lecture notes so that students can refer back to anything you shared in class. Some students need to read things over again to help it stick.

I'm not really sure and no one has been able to tell me, other than to say they feel like the students may not pay as much attention because they already have all the notes they need. It really is pointless, however, because our topics come straight out of their textbooks so there's really no information on the slides that couldn't be found in the book (if they would crack them open).
