I have recently started my job at a university. For students I appeared as a strict teacher who ask for a daily response. I followed the each teaching strategy of my highly intelligent and one of favoirite teacher among students. The class that I was assigned, is one of the favoirite class of head of the department, some students are very near to him. The class has no base or background about subject so in start they felt difficulty in understanding things. And told me that they are not getting my lectures because I am fast at speaking. I sent my lectures recording to my friend (he has 10 years of experiemce) and asked him aboit lecture quality or speed. And he said that everything is good and understandable. I, then tried to slow my speed of speaking and taught them basics (which were expected as prerequisite of course), told them each thing, which according to them I am going in deep of the topic. Then they complained I am speaking fast and teaching topic in depth. Then I contacted a teacher (in the same department from other campus) and asked about his teachings strategy materials. He told me that he is tecahing the topics in same manner.
Then student continuously said that they are unable to understand my lectures. I asked my colleague to talk to them. Ahe talked to students and told me that don't force students to learn. If four students are responsing means my lecture is understandable (among whole class 4 to 5 students were alwayz responding to me). So continue teaching as you are teaching.
So I followed his advice not completely but to some extent. Now they all are happy because I am not asking for their response but they didn't stop insulting.
