I thank Lou Talman (2011) for alerting me to David Bressoud's (2011)
perceptive MAA Launchings piece "The Worst Way to Teach."

In addition to Bressoud's excellent set of references, other
anti-passive-student-lecture references are Epstein (2007), Mazur
(2009), and Hake (1998a,b; 2011a,b).

A crucial companion paper to Hake (1998a). Rejected :-( by a confused

well-organized Physical-Review-type data tables were "impenetrable" !!

Mazur, E. 2009. "Confessions of a Converted Lecturer" talk at the
University of Maryland on 11 November 2009. That talk is now on UTube
at <http://bit.ly/dBYsXh>, and the abstract, slides, and references -
sometimes obscured in the UTube talk - are at <http://bit.ly/9qzDIq>
as a 4 MB pdf. As of 15 July 2011 09:11-0700 Eric's talk had been
viewed 40,132 times. In contrast, serious articles in the education
literature are often read only by the author and a few cloistered
specialists, creating tsunamis in educational practice equivalent to
those produced by a pebble dropped into the Pacific Ocean.
