Higher Education Classroom Management: Kuwait University Students' Views
Al-Hamdan, Jasem
College Student Journal, v41 n3 p572-582 Sep 2007
This study attempts to examine students' views on the effectiveness of classroom management techniques used by faculty members. By examining their views, some insights may be gained as to the kinds of management techniques that a faculty member might adopt in order to promote better teaching and learning environment. Effective classroom management involves more than merely supplying knowledge. The faculty member is a major player in setting the classroom climate, which is so important to student learning. Minimizing tension inside the classroom, moderating students' behavior, listening to students' complaints, encouraging them to excel and being serious when needed. These are effective parts of effective classroom management. Thus the faculty member needs to assess the impact of the management styles utilized in order to develop skills of human relations and decision-making (Hammad, 1995). The study examines the views of senior undergraduate students on a matter closely related to their daily academic life. It is hoped that the results and recommendations of the study will help faculty members understand the realities of classrooms as managed by them from students' perspectives. It is also hoped that this study serves as the starting ground for further studies on classroom management, not only at the College of Education but also by other colleges at Kuwait University as well as at other universities.
