But in UK (at least at City Univ.) you can sometimes see more than one lecturer during a module. For instance I attended the module “Research Evaluation and Communication Skills”. It included 10 sessions and was taught by 5 lecturers. There was one main lecturer as module leader and in every session a different lecturer who was expertise in the topic of that session came and taught. Or the module “Information Resources and users” was taught jointly by two lectureres. In many modules you can see that in some sessions a guest speaker who is expert in that field from the same school or sometimes form a different university come and make a lecture for 30 minutes or 1 hour or whatever.
For instance I remember that in the last session of the Module “IR systems and applications” professor Steve Robertson as a guest speaker talked about the future of research in IR. Unfortunately it seems because of payment arrangemnet in Iranian universities which is not flexible enough and because of many other reasons, it is very hard ot use the expertise of lecturers efficiently. But the UK is a good case in this respect to at least learn how to make teaching more interesting and efficient both for student and lecturers.
