How to Solve Problem Related to Class Room Participation of Surveying Engineering Students at Wallaga University Under College of Engineering and Technology

Different instructors in various area of the country have conducted studies on improving student motivation in the classroom. The active participation of learners is crucial for effective teaching and learning methods. However, the contribution of both inside and outside of the classroom is lacking in this regard. It is important to understand the factors that contribute to successful learner participation when implementing active learning method in the class room. At Wallaga University specially, among second-year surveying engineering students in the college of engineering and technology, learner contribution is low. This is primarily because active learning methods are not being effectively utilized. Based on these findings factors that affect learner participation in the class room include the lack of active learning methods, improper seating arrangements, lack of encouragement, fear and hesitation, lack of confidence, socio-cultural background, language barriers, and relationship between learners and instructors. Therefore, the researchers have taken action to identify which active learning methods are more effective in bringing about changes in learners, properly arrange classroom sizes, provide opportunity for learners to practice educational language, establish good relationship with learners, create a safe environment for them to express their thoughts without fear, and allocate sufficient time for them to share their ideas.
