There are several styles of delivering a lecture:
- The lecturer uses the blackboard and the students write their own lecture notes.
- The lecturer uses the blackboard and also provide a script so that the students are not forced to create their own script (but they can when they wish).
- The lecturer uses a slide show and uploads it to his homepage. In those lectures the student normally doesn't create his own script.
Each lecture style differs in the question, whether the students have the possibility to write their own script or whether they are forced to do so. How do those ways to lecture influence the learning outcome?
To make my question concrete: Is there any research investigating how important the act of writing his own script during the lecture is for the learning outcome? Is it advisable to give the students the possibility to write their own lecture notes or should they forced to do so?
