Hytham Mohmmad Falah Bany Issa

This paper investigated to what extent academic staffs at Al Ain University of Science and Technology implement psychosocial classroom environment elements from the perspective of the Professional Diploma Program students. To achieve the objective of the study the researcher, based on previous related studies, developed and used a questionnaire that has the necessary elements to sufficiently elicit the subject’s responses. All students enrolled in the professional diploma in teaching program at Al Ain University of Science and Technology formed the subjects of the study. The results showed that the scale items got positive perception from all the students and who believed that their instructors at the program displayed good implementation of the psychosocial classroom environment elements. While the student’s gender did not have a significant influence on their responses, the branch of study at high school affected students’ responses. By comparison, that literary branch showed more satisfaction with their teachers’ implementation. Findings may be useful to teacher educators in developing a self-judgment process in order to revise their practice to enhance the educational experience. This could create a better teaching atmosphere that, of course, could lead to a successful learner.
