I  learned it in the 1990s at some point, maybe late 1990s, after coming in the early 1990s, so it could easily be later.

Good point, Wilson. Maybe not in Wisconsin … ‘lecture’ is a designation used for a 3-hour per week class that’s not a seminar, etc. So, this might be motivated by an effort to distinguish.


Hmmm.  I don’t remember that, but maybe it’s a more recent nomenclature?  Or maybe my memory has elapsed?

Isn't that just a "lecture"?
