The present study aimed to explore the gender difference in teaching styles and<br>how it affects the interaction between students and teachers; how it enhances the<br>motivation and discipline of students. It also attempted to explore whether students<br>feel that differences in teaching styles are effective to enhance their learning and<br>academic performance. The students both male and female were selected through<br>purposive sampling techniques. In-depth interviews were conducted with the help of a<br>structured interview protocol by Ya-Ching Chang (2010). The participants (n=12)<br>included 6 boys and 6 girls within the age group of 18-24 years. The sample was chosen<br>from the public university of Lahore. The thematic analysis was used to bring out the<br>emerging themes. The study identified three major themes. The participants perceived<br>the issues of partiality and punctuality among teachers. Both male and female<br>participants mostly perceived male faculty members to be more empathetic and<br>maintained better discipline among students and motivated the students to learn.</p> Asma Seemi Malik Shahla A Yasin Amjad Mahmood Madeeha Tariq Copyright (c) 2022 ASIAN Journal of International Peace & Security (AJIPS) 2022-12-30 2022-12-30 6 4 1 16
