Most lecturers in 3rd level educational institutions realise that they need to maintain academic and professional currency; they need to research and refresh if they are to be properly relevant to students and to make their jobs fulfilling. How can we stay abreast of our subjects and deliver lectures that engage the interest and participation of our student audience? Take a subject like ‘Building Management’; since I joined the staff of Bolton Street many years ago, I have been grappling with how to make my ‘Management’ lectures interesting and useful, and so ensure a ‘captive’ audience in the classroom!
