Teaching 21st-century style

Two of your correspondents in last week's Dilemmas column made me wonder how much attention lecturers pay to their student's backgrounds and learning styles. Your comment, which told of a colleague who videoed his lessons for `students, was just a glimpse of the future.

A catering lecturer from Colchester institute reported increased attention since plasma screens were fitted in the kitchens - students say they remember more because the lesson was seen through a TV screen.

Perhaps colleagues up and down the country need to re-think their art and make more use of the technology available to them.

E-learning is here to stay.
