Dear sir: This is an assignment and question is : Students under stress situation, how it might impact on their learning? I wrote the assignment, but without an introduction, a conclusion and references can it be more academic writing . In the introduction, please mention that I will talk about stress for students and stress for the teachers in the higher education then next I will talk about my experience of stress when I was a student. so if you can please add references to support the assignment .we should only use three references and it should be written in Harvard referencing . The word limit is 750 words not more than that and please but at the last page the references links . For example references: 1) Bikmoradi, A., Brommels, M., Khorasani-Zavareh, D., Masiello, I. & Shoghli, A. (2010). Identifying challenges for academic leadership in medical universities in Iran. Medical Education 44: 459-467. The assignment is about supervision in higher education and health care Specifically in stress and is impact in learning and is also about thinking in a critical way by bringing an example from my experience in my job or when I was undergraduate student and supported by literatures references related to the topic. Attached you can find one reference which our doctor gave us to use . so please use it and add two other references, you can bring references from Google that’s ok, but is should be from the date of 2008 till now and not to use old references. This paragraph is an example from my last assignment just to give you an idea of how it should be written and the style of writing it: The duality of peer assessment is similar to teaching; a teacher imparts knowledge to students, but also must assume the role of learner as students can convey knowledge, too. Peer assessment is intended to “support and enhance learning” (NUIG, 2011). Fourthly, thinking critically and giving constructive feedback are less daunting now, for though difficult to master, they enable the development of one’s objectivity, to put aside biases and regard something with a clear lens. This is reinforced by Gibbs (2010) when discussing “quality assurance and the appropriateness of standards.” Adopting this mentality is key to the success of peer assessment exercises and to the role of teacher. Fifthly, in performing both roles – the assessor and the assesse – my confidence has augmented greatly. Consequently, I am better prepared for teaching, and my desire to assume a future leadership role has emerged. Please send to me any question you have Thank you for your help Maha :)I will talk about stress for students and teachers in higher education next give an example from my experience and how its impact on me
Description of the stress incident
Stress can impact on the learning of the students in higher education, can effect in the performance of the student. Stress for a student they can feel it as an inside continuous feeling. Stress for undergraduate students can be from the teachers, time, the amount of the lectures and studies and home families' issues.Stress also comes when you know that you have to study so hard to get high marks which will effect in having good opportunities for getting the right job.
Stress can come also from the different styles of learning some students learn visually (by seeing and store in their mind) auditory (hearing and speaking). So the teacher should know better about their student learning styles and use the suitable teaching method, e.g. the new generation prefers visual lectures also involve social media
Stress for staff in higher education happens because of lack of the staff having a large group to teach low salary, long hours of work and the demands of the work is also growing.
When I was an undergraduate student one of the stress stories that impact on my learning was I had a doctor who taught us physics lab in my fourth year. We were thirty students at that time and he divided us into three groups of ten students only. In our first lecture there were two students who didn’t care about the physics lab, they were so road by talking loud and using their mobiles while the doctor was teaching us. He tried several times by asking them to be quiet and take attention of the class, but there was no pavement from them, so in the second week the doctor informed my group that this class will be cancelled so no bother to come to class. We were shocked by his decision, it wasn’t fair he should punished only the two students and for the three months of the semester we did our best by studying from the notes of the other groups and in the final exam lab we all got a very low mark. We were so stressed and had a little anger at that time, we didn’t want our low marks to affect our GPA. We felt at that time that his decision was not fair for the whole group. So we decided to go to the head of the department and we told him the story. He was supportive and he talked to the doctor, but the doctor insisted not to repeat the exam and for that the head of the department wrote a report to the dean of the faculty were the dean punched the doctor that he will not more teach for one semester. And he asked the head of the department to let another doctor give us two lectures about what will come in the exam and key points of each lecture we missed. So we got the chance to repeat our exam whith good grades
From that we were stressed and having trouble sleeping after taking the bad results
Most of the stress was from the uncontrolled decision of the doctor, stress of how to study a material without explanation also stress of having an unknown exam stress of the low marks
Positive points were the dean gave us the chance to repeat the exam and he was supportive and he lessen the hall story from the group which is a style of a good supervisor .
