Students report two main types of problems with lectures. The first is a difficulty with sustaining attention. Course design or institutional planning can mean students are expected to sit, listen and take notes for several hours at a time, without a break. It is difficult for students to stay focused unless the time is broken into shorter slots with good use of activities and discussion. Unless this is addressed, improving skills may not help much.
