A lecture is a verbal presentation on a single topic.

The lecture is a much misunderstood and maligned method of presentation. Many people remember back to their own experiences of school, often a seemingly endless and boring series of lectures. But a lecture need not be boring, or be totally centered on the presenter as is sadly too often the case.

A lecture is an effective way to present an introduction or overview of a topic, summarize information, inspire or motivate others or gain input from a resource person.
