Lectures are probably the main source of theoretical knowledge that students of a certain module can refer to. This is because lecturers are able to dish out he bulk of the material while interacting to a certain degree with all of the students taking the module. Lectures are generally 1 – 2 sessions long which means they could last for about 1.5 to 2.5 hours. In general, lectures are not that intensive as the teacher will usually focus on one way teaching to cover the entirety of the material. However, asking questions are usually a great way to gain more from lectures while they teacher has time with the class you’re in.
Nevertheless, lectures are not the most important class for you to attend for several reasons. First, lectures are usually recorded. Having recordings of the class allows you to both livestream or watch the recording online. This will save you time and energy while also allowing you to explore different kinds of studying styles that suit you. Second, lecturers are sometimes available outside of lectures. Sessions such as office hours or just dropping by a lecturer’s office to clear up any confusion you might have about the material is a realistic option.
