We welcome you back to the series, we are very happy to receive questions and pointers from more than 100 people for the last series.
Failure to Communicate
It is likely that a student perhaps hasn’t posted the question very clearly; it was misinterpreted. It is also unlikely that a student would take risk of saying, “That’s not the question or I meant this.” Because of the varying culture we are asked to remain silent, unfortunately if this continues it very likely that a student will stay permanently silent. Do we want that to happen?
As teacher, we shouldn’t hold on to few words, have a ugly guess about the question and give a lengthy answer. It is also seen students complain about the teacher to their head of dept or counselor but the trouble might lies elsewhere.
