Abstract

This paper draws on feedback data on a Business and Management Level 3 undergraduate module (Organisational Analysis) at a new university in order to explore current social constructs within this student cohort of quality and nature of a good lecture. Notions of the importance of contextualising a lecture and activating prior learning (Exley and Dennick, 2004) as well as seeing lectures as the key space to enrich students’ knowledge through current thinking, links to research and scholarly activity (Biggs, 2003) seem to be challenged by the students’ construct of a good lecture. In relation to this we explore Business and Management students’ perceptions of interaction in lectures and subsequent lessons on their engagement with different types of information, an area central to future graduates realising their potential in today’s complex organisations and changing environment.
