Why is classroom becoming a pressure cooker?

Maybe you’re usually a straight-A grade student but can’t get a grade higher than a C+ in subjects.

Maybe you’ve tried to talk to a teacher but feel like you just don’t speak the same language.

Maybe you’re convinced that a teacher just doesn’t like you.

Teachers play vital roles in the lives of the students in their classrooms. Teachers are best known for the role of educating the students that are placed in their care. Beyond that, teachers serve many other roles in the classroom.

Teachers set the tone of their classrooms, build a warm environment, mentor and nurture students, become role models, and listen and look for signs of trouble.

“What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.” ― Paulo Coelho

There are many cases such as personality traits of students and teachers in the educational organizations, differences between their values, beliefs and attitudes, crowded classes, lack of quality educational teach-in processes, misunderstanding of the communication process, inadequate tools and equipment’s and sharing of limited resources which cause conflict to be experienced in class or school level.

So conflict can be stated as difference of opinion between teachers and students regarding their subjects suppose if students like a particular style of teaching and it is not full filled by the teachers then the students will raise their concern in the form of conflict.

Conflict can also occur if the teachers do not value their students equally in classes and actually showing their favoritism in the classroom. Consequently it will affect the student’s academic achievements.

Conflicts are perceived as positive effect on classroom learning and student achievement by some researchers as it can increase the learning environment of classroom.

Particularly, classrooms conflicts can present opportunities to push the class to a higher level of understanding and enable the instructor to gain valuable insights into classroom dynamics and improve the course, designed and taught by Students, who feel alienated from other members of the class and distant from theinterests or attention of the teacher are more likely to exhibit aggressive or provocative behavior in class.

Academic research, a notoriously difficult term to define, is the foundation of a modern university education. For an academic institution, high quality researchers are essential for success in the intensely competitive globalized university sectorthere is no denying that the goal of research is different for faculty and students.

To maintain a position in their fields, faculty must have research projects that are on schedule and of high quality, whereas students need to conduct research under a supervisor to fulfill the requirements of a post-graduate degree.

The research supervisor takes overall responsibility for the student’s research training, the conduct of the student supervisor relationship and management of the student’s research progress.

The research supervisor provides the necessary intellectual and pedagogical advice and support for the student.

Supervisors should endeavor to make the student aware of all relevant regulations, policies and codes of practice.

In addition to conflicting goals, time was identified as a common challenge for three reasons: research takes time, students need to be trained and given time to do research, and faculty has commitments other than research.

First, there is the time needed to implement a research project, especially for research that involves a large amount of contextual evidence. Law, for example, focuses heavily on case-based research, but most cases cannot be easily studied in isolation; they are studied within a wider context.

Furthermore, research is not the only thing that takes time; there is also the ordinary work of the department. Teachers at universities have hectic work schedules.

There are only a certain number of hours in every day. With limited working hours, faculties have to balance teaching, learning and research, which are equally important at universities.

In this regard, the relationship and mutual understanding between the two parties is the key to a successful project.

Success is highly dependent on how the supervisor guides the students and recognizes their interests and personalities.

There is obviously no easy way forward to link between teaching and research.

Teachers and researchers should continue to try to develop a good mutual relationship in practice, neither promising too much on teaching nor demanding too much on research.

In one hand, researchers will have little effect on teaching and learning if teachers do not try more and more and in the other hand they cannot lower their professional standards and integrity if they wish to keep the respect of their clients and to do effective work.

“When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready… The teacher will Disappear.” ― Lao Tzu
