Abstract

This qualitative study aims to present how U model seating arrangement affects the process of teaching and learning positively. This study also aims to uncover several activities which could be established when the U model seating arrangement is applied. This study was conducted at IAIN Kendari in 2016. To attain the result of the study, observation and interview were used as the instruments. The result of the study revealed that U model that the lecturer could establish good relation with the students in classroom. In addition, the lecturer also could control all the students and make appropriate eye contact with them. Students responded that, using U model seating arrangement, theyenjoyed the learning process, had good communication with the lecturer, and had good confidence and motivation. The result of the study revealed that U-shape design could facilitate the following: lecturer mobility, eye contact, pupil attention, communication, game playing, and lecturer control. The implication of this study is that harnessing the progress of the students throughout the teaching and learning process is important and essential in establishing a warm and engaging class.
