Title

Factors influencing the success of a lecture

Background

As the digital „Z”-generation arrives in higher education, we witness a changing landscape in educational culture. This is especially true regarding the lectures.

The goal of our current study was to analyse what makes a lecture largely attended, what are the factors determining the lectures’ judgement.

Summary of Results

Satisfying, 75-80% accurate linear models were made, which have determined, that the most influential factors in a lectures judgement are: it’s role in exam-preparation, the dynamism, the organisation.

The most determining factor in the attendance of a lecture is the semester when it is observed, with a stunning 98%.

As for the question of „if you would attend it again”, the most important factor was the role in exam preparation.

Summary of Work

14-item questionnaire was able in the electronic study-system of university. The questionnaires were available from the day of the lecture for two weeks. The filling were voluntary.

43,973 anonymous questionnaires have been collected between 2012 and 2015. Explorative and confirmative factor analysis has been used to validate the inventory. Forward stepwise automatic linear modelling was used to explore the underlying connections between the items.

Conclusion

While the semester seemed the most determining factor, it is no surprise, as in a student gets more „comfortable” in it’s role in the education.  

According to our results, the key to a popular lecture is to give the students a „useable” lecture in a most understandable content.

Take-home Messages

Sadly, there is no guarantee for a popular lecture, not even a good lecture.
