Understanding psychological barriers to healthy interactions between students and teachers is vital in order to promote a positive classroom experience. One crucial factor that might contribute to classroom experience is the fear of making mistakes. But we know very little about the conditions under which such fears become particularly salient, the psychological mechanisms underlying them, and possible vaccines against such incapacitating mind-set. Therefore, my PhD is exploring inter alia, the implications of social category salience, meta-stereotyping and teaching style on Malaysian students' classroom participation. In the end, I expect to integrate assumptions derived from the social identity theory, stereotype inoculation model, stereotype content model and the status and persuasibility hypothesis into a richer framework explaining classroom experience amongst Malaysian university students.
