Abstract:

Teaching is an ability of teacher to efficiently impart knowledge. An effective teacher will be one, who is competent, has knowledge and skill and is a performer i.e. he can use knowledge and skill in a classroom to accomplish a teachers’ goal. It is said that experience and age has a positive effect on teaching. But over a period of time, there is a change in observations. Students’ views are changing. In few of the recent studies students have chosen teachers with good knowledge, communication skills and student friendly nature. So we planned to take students feedback regarding their choice of gender and age of teacher in our classroom teaching. A questionnaire was provided to 75 second year MBBS students, which consisted questions regarding their choice for the gender, age and experience of teachers (either male or female, young or old, experienced or inexperienced) and their reasons behind them. Also a separate space was provided for any specific remarks of the students. In this study most of the students did not feel gender or age as a barrier in teaching until the teacher is active and interested in teaching and they felt, experience has a positive influence on teaching. But it is observed that the females preferred females as they thought it was easy to interact with them. Many students felt females are compassionate, hardworking sincere enough and have got high pitched voice which is audible.
