I had to make small changes over the course of time to get away from lecturing.
One of the first things I did was make my course "web-enhanced." I posted all of my lecture notes, outlines, power points on-line. That way the students had the "lecture material" and did not have to try to take notes. I could do demonstrations, show films, take them on field trips without losing "lecture time.
Then I started adding small student projects. My pharmacology course made drug commercials. I picked the group members, they drew a drug out of a hat, made the commercial, and I uploaded it to the web-site. I gave them objectives, and told them that the commercial had to be suitable to show to a Sunday school class full of grandma's! Some of the commercials were so funny that we were holding our sides, crying with laughter while we watched them.
Another small project was having each student pick three topics and make a trifold presentation board about each topic. The topics were picked the first day of class, and the due dates were assigned. I did not lecture on these topics. The students were told what content needed to be covered and told that their peers were counting on them to cover it. Most of them were awesome, of course there are always a few students who try to get away by doing the least amount of work possible. I have found them to be the exception rather than the rule.
Now in all of my courses the students teach 98% of the content. They are responsible for generating information sheets (takes the place of lecture notes), power points, giving me questions to add to my ever growing test bank of questions, and teaching the information either through games, demonstrations, videos that they make, role playing - you name it.
In the beginning the students were reluctant to change from lecture to alternative methods. Now everyone has heard what to expect in my classroom and they rarely complain (because it doesn't do any good ).
Let me know if you want more ideas!
