Lecturing has been effective for mass education. However, its limitations for learning effectiveness have been well known. Many innovative pedagogies have been developed for increasing interaction and student participation in classes. However, they have not been successfully adopted in most classrooms. On the other hand, the gap on educational quality between the industry and the academia, which is mostly attributable to lecture-based education, has been expanding. We propose a simple and effective strategy to transform teaching and learning to be highly interactive and student-participative by eliminating lecturing from classrooms. After sending lecturing to e-learning, teachers do non-lecturing activities including discussion, Q&A, interactive problem solving, team learning, and labs. We share strategies, feedback, and experiences from a university-wide program for implementing such new teaching and learning.
