As a recent graduate of the Johns Hopkins University, I was dismayed by recent news reports detailing the efforts of several major universities, including Johns Hopkins and the University System of Maryland, to revise or even eradicate the lecture model of teaching in certain disciplines. I am heartened to know that - as one would expect of such a high-caliber university - Hopkins is constantly seeking to improve the effectiveness of the excellent education it offers. However, I believe it is a fallacy to consider the lecture an ineffectual and obsolete teaching method.

They were modern adventure travelers, following the doomed route of Ernest Shackleton to the frozen ends of the Earth. They paid $7,000 to $16,000 to cruise on a ship that had proudly plowed the Antarctic for 40 years. But sometime early yesterday, the Explorer, fondly known in the maritime world as "the little red ship," quietly struck ice. There were the alarms, then the captain's voice on the public address system calling all 154 passengers and crew to the lecture hall, according to passenger accounts on the radio and others relayed from rescuers and the tour operator.

Toddlers and babies are already crying and squirming in their parents' laps when Dr. Penelope Leach walks into the lecture hall at Calvert Hall College Saturday. But she doesn't mind the noise."There's a nice bit of floor here if anyone would like to play," she tells her audience.As followers of the renowned British psychologist know, Dr. Leach cherishes the presence of small children, even crying ones, and insists, "Don't take them out [of the lecture hall] for me."She understands.
