Lectures - Science topic
Lectures are works consisting of speeches read or delivered before an audience or class, especially for instruction or to set forth some subject. They are differentiated from ADDRESSES [PUBLICATION TYPE] which are less didactic and more informational, entertaining, inspirational, or polemic. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
Questions related to Lectures
Recently, I've conceived a research idea to conduct a case study evaluating the performance of lecturers from two or three faculties at my university. The data will be sourced from the academic papers produced by each lecturer, aiming to gauge their significance. However, a pivotal question arises: how can their meaningfulness be effectively evaluated?
I've always strongly believed that much of the research in my faculty might be lacking in practical applicability, not sufficiently serving societal or student needs. However, establishing this belief on a solid, objective foundation poses a challenge.
My desire to pursue this research stems from noticing that many lecturers are perennially occupied. Despite their apparent busyness, I'm uncertain about the fruits of their labor, as tangible learning outcomes in students often seem elusive. Do you have any suggestions to address these observations into a scientific paper?

Both online and physical learning methods have disadvantages & advantages. But according to my experiences, I believe physical lectures, physical class room learning is the most effective way for students to learn and to perform well on their academic.
There are several reasons I would like to mention why I prefer physical class room learning?
- Can maintain good concentration throughout the lectures.
- There is a opportunity to engage with batchmates ,then can talk with each other and share ideas, improve the abilities to work as a team.
- Can directly raise questions to lecturers and can solve them out at that moment.
- Can keep good discipline- Ex- Attend to lectures on time(punctuality/being on time) and many more...
Technology has enhanced the scope and span of the teaching and learning process but somehow it could not enhance the self-motivation and engagement among the students to the same scale. The lack of self-motivation and intermittent engagement is one of the prime challenges faced by educators today. Perplexing tasks for the faculty are to embroil students during the lecture.
Digital Twin (DT) technology is a relatively new notion that has piqued the interest of business and, more recently, academics. Advances in industry 4.0 principles have aided the expansion of DT technology, notably in the manufacturing sector. A DT is characterized in various manner but is best defined as the seamless integration of data between a physical and virtual system in both directions. The idea of DTs originated with NASA1, and the industrial sector embraced DTs as an abstract form of product lifecycle management (PLM).
This is the PowerPoint which I used for my lecture held on Friday, 14th April 2023 at the 1st International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals and the Gandhian Way (Constructive Programmes), organised by the Gandhian School of Democracy and Socialism at ITM University, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India, on 14–16 April 2023. The title of my lecture was: “Rights, liberalism, multiculturalism. The PowerPoint contains some reflections. I am writing a text which will be published in some months. In my study, I deal with different positions on rights, liberalism and multiculturalism. For my investigation, I shall mainly refer to the following studies: Will Kymlicka’s Multicultural Citizenship: A Liberal Theory of Minority, Chandran Kukathas’ Cultural Toleration and The Liberal Archipelago: A Theory of Diversity and Freedom, Doriane L. Coleman’s Individualizing Justice through Multiculturalism: The Liberalsʼ Dilemma, and Brian Barry’s Culture and Equality: An Egalitarian Critique of Multiculturalism. In Kymlicka’s liberal theory of group rights, the acknowledgement of rights to groups and, therefore, of rights not only reserved to individuals is to be interpreted as an extension and natural development of the liberal tradition. Kukathas considers the state as only being an aggregation between groups: the state has therefore no authority of coercion in relation to the groups. Since liberalism is toleration, the rules holding in the different groups ought, in the opinion of Kukathas, to be tolerated, even though these rules are oppressive, intolerant and illiberal for the members of the group itself. The analysis of Coleman will introduce us to the interesting problem of the cultural defences and of the problems that the strategy of the cultural defences represents for the American and not only the American tribunals: is a pluralistic interpretation of the law in a right state to be accepted, as those who plead for the cultural defences want to, or is a pluralistic interpretation of the law to be refused? The analysis of Coleman gives us highly valuable elements in order to understand the problems posed by some interpretations of multiculturalism for the equal protection clause. Barry excludes every form of diminution of individual liberty and of diminution of protection of the individual liberty in his interpretation of liberalism and in the connected duty assigned to the state as regards the protection of the fundamental rights of the individuals.
I am looking for some documents and lectures that can systematically discuss several aspects of spray and atomization modeling in COMSOL Multiphysics. Any lead will be appreciated. Thank you.
No research, to the author's onowledge, exists to correlate learning outcomes to study or learning emphasis of physics masters students. Readon is that usually highly academically achieved students enroll in these masters. But this is just an assumptions that prevents progress and promotes social discrimination or wider student population prospective success.
Some ideas about factors
• proper& conscious emphasis of critical skills (assumption making, conceptual background of theories)
• constructuve utilization of lecture time
• methodical and self-aware of stste of onowledge past paper studying
• relevant journal article study, which deals with exciting ideas and extends tsught concepts
What are some of the methods I can use to research on the student learning outcomes between flipped classroom method and traditional lecture method?

I'm talking to my students (due to necessity) about how it's important that they don't make sexual comments about their female lecturers' appearance. As they're learning psychology I'd like to turn it into a learning experience and talk a little about how female professors are judged differently to their male counterparts in student feedback (appearance related or not).
I can find a lot of grey literature about this, but I'm struggling to find academic papers. Does anyone have any links?
I am reading through 'Gravity Field of the Earth' chapter of geodesy text book. Of course, its difficult to understand for me, is there any video lectures on this topic?
I thought Video content is more reachable as compared to books/papers/articles/blogs. So just find your expert area and prepare its video as a:
I publish the same at a different accessible platforms like

Why we provide theoretical lectures through physical presence in the classroom especially in higher education institutions? In my opinion, we have to deliver theoretical courses through online modalities such as Zoom. We can save chalk, marker, duster, classroom, LCD projector and soon.
Could you share your experiences? Especially, what are trends in both developed and developing world? Which side is better, physical presence in class vs online?
Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences: past, present and future
With regard to the live lecture, What kind of teaching methodology(ies) have you experienced? Were/Was this methodology(ies) effective? Why, Why not?
How are you all, I hope you are doing well.

I am looking for UK Higher Education lecturers, tutors and student support staff and HE outreach workers to complete a 10-minute online questionnaire as part of my PhD study on young father's experiences in higher education. (You do not need to have worked with young student fathers to complete the questionnaire). The study has been approved by Leeds Trinity University ICE ethics committee. Please click on the link below for further information and to take part. Thank you.
When I first began working as a lecturer, I was doing my M. Phil. in the lab of one of my senior Professors and colleagues. Over this time, I have also diligently worked with His MS research students and closely supervised them. The first MS thesis student of my supervisor, who was my second coworker, coordinated the lab and managed the electronic files of the MS research students. My coworker who had been handling the softcopies after my supervisor's recent death published the work without keeping me as a coauthor. How can I now become a coauthor on these published articles?
To conduct high quality research, which source of information below are more important and why?
A. Other publication reports by other researchers/lecturers
B. Primary data, such as survey, interviews or experiments
C. Secondary data, such as commercial databases
During the lecture, the lecturer mentioned the properties of Frequentist. As following
Unbiasedness is only one of the frequentist properties — arguably, the most compelling from a frequentist perspective and possibly one of the easiest to verify empirically (and, often, analytically).
There are however many others, including:
1. Bias-variance trade-off: we would consider as optimal an estimator with little (or no) bias; but we would also value ones with small variance (i.e. more precision in the estimate), So when choosing between two estimators, we may prefer one with very little bias and small variance to one that is unbiased but with large variance;
2. Consistency: we would like an estimator to become more and more precise and less and less biased as we collect more data (technically, when n → ∞).
3. Efficiency: as the sample size incrases indefinitely (n → ∞), we expect an estimator to become increasingly precise (i.e. its variance to reduce to 0, in the limit).
Why Frequentist has these kinds of properties and can we prove it? I think these properties can be applied to many other statistical approach.
Many professors were forced to deliver class lectures remotely and most of these lectures were also recorded. Now classes are back in-person, however, students are still interested in having access to recorded lectures. They find the recordings convenient and help them review course material on their own pace and time.
Academics, however, are hesitant to make their recorded lectures available publicly. Some believe it will negatively affect class attendance and others doubt the usefulness of watching videos without in-person interaction.
Could you share your experience as a student or as a professor.
currently, I am trying to publish a qualitative paper. For some reason, It is tough to get any guidance from my lecturers in the faculty( some of them might not take me seriously because I am still a degree student in my second year). and I do also have much trouble knowing what I can and cannot do in writing a qualitative paper( but this is a different story).

Hello, I’m currently doing my research project and it seems like the lecturers don’t want to reply to anyone or help anyone.
my problem is is that I have a my gender group males and females. I have my sports groups team sports individual sports or no sports then three questionnaires that they have filled out replaying to mental health. what data analysis would I run all this through.
Recently i got a sequence from my lecturer then he ask me to found the mutation from it using bioedit, i've done this, i've alignment it with the normal sequences in NCBI, but i find so many mutation, i guess i was use the wrong technique, please tell me how to find it? I need it as soon as possible
Has anybody done research on the comparison of in-class teaching vs online-teaching (during covid 19 pandemic):
e.g. effects on learning progress, student satisfaction, sucess in exams, ....
Thank you for any hints.
Faculty often tell students to study two hours for every credit hour or even 3. The U.S. Department of Education defines the credit hour as “One hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out of class student work each week for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester. Most University classes have an average fixed time of lecture fixed at three hours, and usually followed by a short 10 minute break at the mid point. This is true from US to across Asia. However in Australia its around one and half hours with heavy doses of assignment and research work. However student focus wavers generally after the 1st 20-25 minutes. Modern best practices strongly suggest limiting the length of a lecture to 15-20 minutes, or breaking up a longer lecture with hands-on activities, as research shows that 20 minutes is about as long as humans can maintain their attention on one source of information (Bligh, 2000).
So should the Universities and Dept of Education rethink and draft a new binding teaching pattern with 20-25 minutes per session followed by activities or assignments or group projects?

What do you think of a PhD? Just another academic degree? That’s what many people think when they see PhD on someone’s CV, implying somewhat an ignorance on their part. A PhD is not just a degree similar to an undergraduate degree where students take lectures for a few years to learn various subjects.
Next time when you see PhD on someone’s CV, know that they are actually highlighting a full time job - yes, you read it correct - a full-time
Job as a researcher. A PhD in Indian University’s takes on 5 -7 years to complete meaning a research work experience of anywhere between 5-6 years. Experience that comes from a lot of working hours, collaborations, meetings, rejections, and many more ups and downs. In many cases, they go through much more than a typical like 10-5 jobs.
Having said that, it doesn’t mean that every PhD holder is as ready as the other one, right after graduating. But, this is exactly the same in any other field, where people have to learn many skills on the job, gaining more experience over the years.
So whether you are in academia or industry, when you have an applicant with a PhD on their CV, please do not reject their applications because they do not have experience.
That’s my opinion. What do you think? Is PhD a work experience?…😎
Greetings Professors, scientists and lecturers,
In phylogenetic tree analysis/evolutionary trees, most of them have only two branches. Why is that?
Though there are subdivision of small branches from the ancestors, everything divides into two but not three or four or five or six? Why?
Please clarify my query.
Thank you in advance

Hi, I'm currently carrying out research on the various techniques that can be used to support reverse mentoring in higher education. I'm thinking of knowledge sharing and self-efficacy as a type of technique. I'm I on the right track? if not, kindly suggest some for me and how best do one introduce it into the educational sector by putting into consideration lecturers in higher education.
Articles or journals on this subject matter will be of great help while sharing personal experiences is also welcome.
I want input on the concept of educated elite academics. The idea is that studying to the level of a M.Sc. to Ph.D. makes one an educated elites and these group abound in society. Likewise among this group, some teach/lecture hence tagged academics. I want published/unpublished works that I can use to buttress this idea.

Hi ResearchGate community,
I am looking for scientific methods to evaluate student engagement levels per each lecture or few lectures (teaching modules) in two 200 and 400 level engineering courses. My goal is to measure learning outcomes at the end of each assessment module and test correlation between learning outcomes and engagement levels as a function of different teaching methods.
Question is: what are some rigorous and reproducible methods to measure student engagement during a lecture?
I want to know more about the basic knowledge of automatic control, discrete-time system and Information Physics fusion system. I hope to have some courses to guide me.
I am currently writing my master thesis on "Optimizing the transition from Design Thinking to Scrum in a co-creation approach" at Munich University of Applied Sciences. For the empirical part I am looking for experts in the university context (lecturers, professors, PhD students) who drive an integrated approach of DesignThinking and Scrum (similar to CIL Solution Delivery Approach: https://www.co-inno-lab.org/cil-ansatz) within student projects. Do you know anyone who teaches in this area or even a university course that includes such an approach?
I appreciate any tips - Thank you!
As most or probably all of you who teach lectures–besides conducting research–we have been working away from students. My question is, what platform are you using for online lectures?
I am using Google Classroom for organizing work, but don't know how to give an actual (video) class where students can join live and ask questions, etc.
I have never liked relying on PowerPoint presentations so most of my lectures are on the actual whiteboard, just supported by a few slides when charts need to be shown, so I basically wanted to continue with live classes.
Will I have to record videos? Or, is there a live platform that performs well and 20-25 students can join in? Preferably that I can see them too. Is that too much to ask given the circumstances i.e., with a MacBook, a videocamera and home internet? I have applied for a Cisco Webex account but given the demand it will take some time and I don't know if students will be able to use it.
Cheers and take care.
I got a PhD degree last year. However, i started working as lecture in university and find my self in charge of many subjects, laboratories and graduation projects because there are a leake of lecture in my university. However, i don't want just to be a lecturer and i want to continue in academic work such as : publishing papers
i trying many plans to mange my time but i haven't done any good result.
could you please share your experience about your journey yo how do you developed your self as academic person ? and divide your time between academic work and work in university especially when there is a lot of pressure.

I want to know if I am trying to do a 2 stage mendelian randomization. Using R software with the mendeliazation package,
Since using a logistic regression the snp does not have a significant p value with the outcome Mi but with a Cox proportional model it does. How then can I find a causal effect or effect size of the exposure on the outcome.
My lecture said I could divide the coef of the log hazard of the snp to the outcome from the Cox by the coefficient of the linear regression of the snp and the exposure to get my effect size. I still didn't understand how I could that.
Also when I went ahead to use the predict model to get unconfounding values for hdl and ldl, I realised that when regressed the uncounfounded model on the other outcome, I got 6 but when I did the coef of the log ( snp_ outcome effect) divided by the coefficient of the linear model (snp_ exposure effect) I got 0.069.
I have been finding it difficult to reconcile these two.
Will be glad if someone can help me answers to this.
I am currently coordinating a course on tourism planning and regional development and want one lecture slot to more closely examine tourism development in times of crisis. How do you plan when you have no idea what to plan for?
I would like to base it around climate change, Covid-19, but also the current on-going conflict in Ukraine.
Thankful for any suggestions on material to make the lecture more profound. I also welcome a discussion on this topic I can share with my students if you wish to voice your opinion.
I am a law lecturer, I have just created a law board game, and is now in the process of doing Lab validation & Prototype testing. How do I do it?
I am looking for the best online teaching platform (due to Covid-19).
The features I need would be to
1: share audio, video lecture utilizing less data (due to problems of data costs for the students in developing countries)
2. bear weaker/interrupted internet signals during live lectures.
3. Offcourse free of cost.
I had noticed that many universities are showing intrests in previous or 1st degree CGPA while hiring a masters or PhD candidate. But they dont show interest to interview the students with low CGPA but with high potential to handle a research. There are so many talented students who are looking for a M.Sc or PhD full scholarships with an excellent grade for their final year research thesis but with a decent CGPA. Also those students have the potential to face the postgraduate studies. Though they are not offered a scholarship which is hard to accept. If they are given a right opportunity definitely they will prove them selves to this world. In my opinion CGPA is decided by the lecturers itself. So why dont universities interview students with high potential while offering a placement?
I am planning to do a questionnaire study. My variables are
university performance (X)
lecturers contribution (Moderator)
1. For collecting lecturer contribution, my sample population are lecturers.
2. For collecting university performance, my sample population is university administration staff
3. For collecting students performance, my sample population are both lecturers and university administration staff
Please tell me should I design two separate questionnaires in one study. What can be the best way of designing this or these questionnaires? Please refer me to any research articles.
Thank you very much for your cooperation
