Communication and Students' Needs - Measuring Students' Affect toward Teaching and Learning Process in Higher Education

Ridwan Effendi, Vidi Sukmayadi

Abstract

In achieving successful learning outcomes, educational systems should be able to fulfill not only students' academic needs but also their personal and interpersonal needs. To meet the students' needs, an effective and affective communication must be employed in the teaching and learning process. In the current study, the authors measure students' affect in regard to their affective learning experience and their evaluation toward their teachers while studying in the university. Surveys were used to collect the students' affect from 886 students in eight faculties at Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia. The following results were yielded from the data: (1) six out of eight faculties indicate a high affective learning level; (2) In terms of teachers/instructors evaluation, most students from all faculties have a high level of appreciation to their teachers' instructional communication; (3) In addition, the faculty of Art and Design Education received the highest rate on their students' affect. The study is expected to contribute in providing initial data for developing an affective based learning program.
