I'm spoiled, went to a small liberal-arts school where there were no lecture courses. There were lectures, but they were always integrated with small-group discussions led by professors who were there to teach.

crassfool,

My public high school had some offerings like that. Those experiences were invaluable.

My experience at UCONN was working a job and studying over several years. I was at the local branch where classrooms were very small groups of students. That too was like what you are describing.

Thanks I did not realize how good that worked out compared to being in massive classrooms and disappearing as I did at the University of Houston in my first two years there.
