you should put your database functions or procedure in a model. Use the controller to handle the input and output.

Example for your select dropdown.

lecture_model.php

<?php if( !defined('BASEPATH') ){exit("No direct script access allowed!");}

class Lecture_Model extends CI_Controller {

    public function get_coarse_information()
    {
        $this->db->select('id, email');
        $this->db->from('course_lecturers');

        $query = $this->db->get();

        if($query->num_rows() > 0){
            return $query->results_array();
        }else{
            return false;
        }
    }



}

The data gets passed to the view in the controller

$data['coarse_information'] = $this->lecture_model->get_coarse_information();

$this->load->view('template', $data);

create loop in the view.

<select name="">
<option></option>
<?php foreach($coarse_information as $info): ?>
<option value="<?php echo $info['id']; ?>"><?php echo $info['email']; ?></option>
<?php endforeach; ?>
</select>
