Are you familiar with the learning pyramid? Based on research this shows us what the average retention rates are with different types of instruction. Notice that lecture is the least retained? What are the implications of this when we look at how information is generally given to people?

I actually heard that the "research" doesn't actually support this model. I think it might be interesting for us to dig a little deeper and share what is solid about it and what might be misleading. Just a thought.
