There have been many students who complained about the modules as well as the teaching staff in several universities as some of these lecturers lack real-life working experience. Some of the problems cannot be addressed directly to the lecturer as students are always underestimated and taken lightly by them which is probably caused by their lack of communication skills (which can be gained from working experience). This is actually a very big issue considering that they do not respect us as students thus causing students to lose interest in their lessons. Moreover, the materials that they use in their lectures most of the time are things that can easily be found on the Internet. Even worse, sometimes they do not even teach us. Instead, they would just read the slides and expect students to understand on their own. If that is the case, the teaching position doesn't even need to exist. Aside from that, in the medical community, it is already a requirement for the teaching staff to have experience in their field before actually teaching medical students. We strongly believe that this should be applied to the majority of the courses in all universities. In conclusion, lecturers should have both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience to make sure that universities will produce respectful, educated, and  exposed graduates
