Results: Strategies to help lecturers to reduce challenging behaviors are as follows: "development of efficient communication and interpersonal skills for better understanding of students' viewpoints", "setting clear course expectations which are consistent with course objectives and evaluation", "appropriate feedback of teaching and learning during the term, "creating collaborative learning environments and interactive management of classroom", "respectful response to student's conflicts instead of harsh response", "inquiring into the complaints and immediate investigation based on their priorities".
