I was just wondering whether anyone else was in the same situation as me. All my previous university lecurers have taught from powerpoints and then uploaded them to the VLE. I have just started a new module and the lecturer doesn't teach from slides or upload any resources to the VLE. We have tried asking whether there is a specific textbook that he recommends for the module but he just said any old textbook will do. We literally have to write down every word that he says! Fair doos but I have 2 2 hour lectures for this module. Before one of these lectures I have 4 hours of a lectures for a different module. How am I supposed to concentrate for that long? Anyone in the same situation?

Rather than asking for textbooks, maybe you should ask him to upload the PowerPoint presentations onto the VLE? Alternatively, if he doesn't want to do that, you can always ask him to email you them.

Another useful tip is to share notes with your friends so you can pick up any bits you might've missed out.

That's what I was meaning. There are no powerpoint presentations. He simply writes/draws on the white board and uses a carera to project textbook pictures onto the screen! Yes, sharing our notes is probably the way to go!

If you need, you could possibly ask him if you could record the lecture. Some universities do lecture podcasts

I had a guy like this when I was at Exeter back in my Biochem days. Thankfully he printed out some notes which helped us not have to write down anything. Does he have any resources like worksheets which could act as your notes instead?
