Abstract

Students’ academic performance plays a vital role in producing the best quality graduates who will form the major source of human capital. Their ability to practically apply what they have learnt during lectures promotes the quality of their learning process further. Unfortunately, students sometimes faced some difficulties in understanding the lessons taught by their lecturers. Failure to understand what have been taught could cause the students to easily forget not only what they have learnt in university once they graduated but they also tend to forget what they have learnt in the earlier semester and interrupt the progression of the learning process throughout their academic years. This preliminary study aims to identify the real essence of the problems faced by the students in understanding the lessons taught during lectures. Understanding their experiences and listening to their opinions and suggestions could probably reveal the teaching and learning approaches that would truthfully solve their learning problems effectively. This preliminary study employed qualitative approach utilising focus group discussion. It was known that lack of focus during lectures could disrupt students’ ability to understand the lessons. Once the effective teaching and learning approaches are identified, it can be developed into teaching techniques, modules or tools that will be usable by the lecturers to improve their teaching and learning processes.
