Education and Development

Description

Dealing with students from different backgrounds is a very difficult job for University professors. This is seen in many instances when teaching them. The article in question gives a deeper insight into a very sensitive and a very detailed aspect of teaching: the effect of a professor’s attitude on students’ learning motivation. It is based, though, on the experience of the professors who use only English in the classroom. Special emphasis was given to the students from the Department of English which is a part of the International Business College located in Mitrovica (a town North of Kosovo). Despite being one of the main and the most sensitive issues in teaching, the article manages to tackle it in a very careful manner. It finds a balance between other elements of teaching on one hand and a professor’s attitude on the other. However, a lot of effort had to be made for what is written herein be as more accurate as possible. The article further goes on giving examples of different attitudes and to what extent professors should pay attention to their attitude. Even though a lot has been written about the attitude, the study is still ongoing due to the high importance of the issue and the necessity of going deeper into the very minor elements that influence students’ motivation. These might go unnoticed if the issue is dealt with otherwise and given insufficient time. Based on this all, the greatest efforts were put to reveal the true effect that a professor’s attitude may have on pupils overall learning motivation at the International Business College located in Mitrovica town. The decision on writing this article has been made after a long time of experience with the students from different backgrounds.
