Dr. Julie's edification challenge - how to engage the disengaged college students?
by Disha Sachdeva
International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies (IJTCS), Vol. 6, No. 4, 2015

Abstract: Teaching is a blissful experience and a healthy appetite for those who are fervent and feel euphoric about it. Teaching in fact teaches. Students by being inquisitive act as catalysts motivating the teachers to be forever ready with oodles of knowledge on wide-ranging topics. Complacency amounts to stagnancy and has absolutely no place in the world of teaching. What happens when a true teacher wishes to nurture and groom her students but feels hopelessly frustrated seeing un-willing and disinterested recipients? Is it because the deliverer fails to understand the audience requirements or it is because of the lackadaisical attitude cropping up among the student community at large? This paper presents a case study which highlights the challenges faced by Dr. Julie (name changed) in her professional role as a college Professor and invites both students and teachers to examine the associated dilemmas and address the issues related to the same.
