    Student passivity is a problem in higher education classrooms. This study contests that much of it may be caused by the presentation style in lectures. The ubiquitous use of PowerPoint has negatively affected student engagement in higher education classrooms. Accordingly, research was conducted into the removal of PowerPoint as a transmission medium. The location was in two undergraduate modules at an Irish university. A total of 136 students were involved over a 12-week period. Data following the interventions were collected the survey method. Results showed a positive response to the removal of PowerPoint resulting in increased engagement by students.
