Management and Control of Classroom for Effective Teaching-Learning Process in Tertiary Institutions: Policy Implications

Amos Oyetunde Alabi


The paper examines the importance of management and control of the classroom for effective teaching-learning process in tertiary institutions. Classroom or lecture room is one of the most important facilities in tertiary institutions being the pedagogical home of instruction. Lecture room may be physical as in the case of a four-wall room and it may be abstract as in the case of on-line teaching.

Classroom management and control are affected by psychosocial, physical and teaching methods. Each of those factors plays a very significant role in the management and control of class/lecture room for effective teaching-learning process. Each of them can make or mar the teaching-learning process depending on how the lecturer understands and handles them.

The paper, however, recommends some steps to be taken by lecturers to manage and control the classroom for effective teaching-learning process. Some of these are; the teacher being a model to the students should endeavour to know the students very well and by names, build good, cordial and lively relationship with the learners helps students to develop positive confidence in themselves, prepare well for the lectures, create conducive learning atmosphere in the lecture room and set some rules, among others.

The paper considers some policy implications of management and control of the classroom for effective teaching and learning processes on the proprietor, management, staff and students in a tertiary institution.
