I feel an international student has a grudge against me and has complained about me regarding my teaching methods etc. during lectures and that I read off the slides which I really don’t. The thing is, the subject is highly factual and requires a great deal of coverage before any activity can occur. The student has as well made up some instances where I was not being effective. Other students are fine in class except her. Any advice? I don’t feel angry about it or anything just like it’s that student’s own responsibility to turn up for class and if they don’t it’s their loss for any confusion. Have you ever felt this way?
Since there is no proper system in the department, students do get their way bargaining with other lecturers on due dates for assignment submission whereas I just stick to the dates set just to cover myself from any liability by management. So perhaps the students was feeling like why am I the only strict and proper one? I’m still a young lecturer.
