Teaching in higher education is a very complicated and detailed subject. Good teaching encourages high quality student learning. One of the key principle of effective teaching in higher education is the concern and respect for student learning. Learning style, learning dimensions and academic belief systems as significant factors contributing to academic achievement. The quality of student learning in higher education should be improved and can be improved. How can it best be improved?. The answer is nearer to home :it lies in the connection between students’ learning of particular content and quality of our teaching of that content. Through listening to what students have said about their learning, we have observed how real this connection is. Good teaching and good learning are linked through students ‘experiences of what we do. It follows that we can not teach belter unless we are able to see what we are doing from their point of view’ (Ramsden,1999). Learning dimensions and academic belief systems as significant factors contributing to academic achievement. Anyone can only improve the quality of higher education if he/she study its effects on students and look at the experience through their and their lecturers’ eyes.
