Characteristics of Effective Instructors from the Students' Perspective in Swiss Higher Education

Roediger Voss


Abstract: This experiential analyse targets to develop a deeper understanding of the expectations regarding the teaching qualities of effective lecturers that students desire. The main objective of the present paper is to uncover the constructs that underlie these prospects in order to reveal the primary benefits that students seek. A semi-standardized qualitative technique called laddering was applied that allows researchers to stretch deeper levels of reality. This technique involves progression from attributes to benefits to more values. The study results demonstrate that students want lecturers to be knowledgeable, empathic, enthusiastic, approachable, and friendly. The Lecturers should have communicative competence. Students desire to learn something appears to be the most important concern and the key concept of meaning altogether. They predominately want to encounter appreciated teaching experiences to be fit for their job. Underlying students values are self-fulfilment, achievement, security, well-being.
