This study assesses the relationship between students’ satisfaction and teachers’ teaching at university level in Pakistan. The main focus of the study is on the factors, which are time management, assessment and evaluation, teachers’ behavior and attitude, and mastery over content and delivery of instruction. A survey research design was used. A questionnaire with 5-point likert type scale having 30 items was used to collect the information from the students. The sample size of the study was 400 masters’ degree students who were studying at the time of research in the institute. Mix method sampling technique was used to select the subjects of the study.

"Minority art, vernacular art, is marginal art. Only on the margins does growth occur." --Joanna Russ.
As the quotation from Joanna Russ--a prominent science fiction author and feminist--indicates, this year's New York College English Association conference is concerned with exploring art, literature, and pedagogy on or around the margins.
The Cormac McCarthy Society invites paper proposals for its Fall 2017 Conference, to be held Sept. 1-3 in Austin, Texas. Based on the new, exciting Nautilus essay, we have decided to extend the submission deadline to April 30, 2017.
Papers on all topics relating to the works of Cormac McCarthy, from all perspectives, are invited, including considerations of theatrical productions or film adaptations of his work, pedagogical approaches, and the relationship of McCarthy’s work to other authors or artists.
Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of artistry and activism. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to artistry and activism. Possible topics include but are not limited:

The new president did not show any interest in higher education until the late stage of the campaign. His pick to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos also does not have any background in higher education. In addition to his impulsive and popularist policies that horrify experts, his connivance of white supremacy and anti-intellectualism especially put academe in jeopardy. We have already witnessed unpromising changes on campuses in the U.S. since his appearance for the election. Racial and religious minority groups became targets of hate-motivated incidents. White-supremacist posters and fliers, swastikas, and racial epithets, which were once believed as taboo, cause constant controversies on campus.
