How about the distractions?

Had one lecturer that seemed to create a little white blob on his lip. His tongue, lizard like, would swap this from side to side. Mesmerising.

Or the dog and pony show, one talked the other double tapped the electronic board. Interesting the first time, as the talk droned on, tap-tap, tap-tap . . .

No memory of the lecture, again hypnotized by the tap-tap.

OTOH, there are some brilliant lecturers. One, Bob Rosenhorn-Lang, taught astro navigation, his party trick to start was to draw a perfect circle on the black board. Thereafter you were glued to the celestial body as he explained to the theory.
