Dr Lynda Shevellar 77.0

Lynda is a brilliant lecturer to have. Her approach to learning is different to most other lecturers. Lynda generally uses a facilitation method to teach. Although the courses are long (4 hours straight), her approach does make you learn more. She uses reading reviews where generally the first hour of each class is spend within a small group discussing readings before we present to the class.

If you don't mind talking and you enjoy some flexibility in your learning, taking one of Lynda's classes would be very beneficial!

On the other hand, because Lynda is always moving around and generally never uses a power point, if you miss a class there aren't any power point slides or lecture recordings you can refer to.

If you are falling asleep in your usual lectures, check out her workshops!

Which course did you take? (e.g. MGTS1301)
