Lectures have been used as a teaching method for many centuries and remain a standard on most university courses. More than twice as many teaching hours are devoted to lectures on the MPharm course at the University of Portsmouth than to all other teaching methods. Lecturers frequently express concern however, at low levels of attendance at lectures and, during 2007-8, registers were taken at approximately 15% of MPharm lectures. The aims of the research were to ascertain whether any correlation existed between lecture attendance and exam performance, and to investigate both lecturers’ and students’ attitudes towards and opinions of lectures as a method of teaching. A Scoping Exercise was used to put the work into context with other UK Schools of Pharmacy (SoPs).
