This paper looks at some of the techniques that have been used to make the lecture theatre and classroom more effective and provides details of an astonishing Australian success story. There have been questions raised among academics about the usefulness of the traditional lecture approach that has been used for many years at universities and other tertiary institutions. With increasing calls from some quarters to embrace modern technology and move to more interactive learning systems, the time has come to examine just whether such a radical change is indeed warranted. The approaches taken by two undergraduate and postgraduate business faculties at a leading university are contrasted.
