The purpose of this study was to understand the effects of teachers' attitudes, effectiveness of various teaching methods employed as well as teachers' perceptions of the teaching experience on effectiveness of teaching-learning processes in computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing and computer numerical control (CAD/CAM/CNC) module used in vocational education department in Bahrain. Previous studies suggested that a part of the problem in CAD/CAM/CNC subject area is the use of inappropriate teaching methods which affect students' achievements negatively. It has been suggested that negative teaching practices for example, teaching without visual effects, lack of interaction in the class and lack of motivational tool may affect students' achievement. A questionnaire has been developed to understand teacher's experience of the teaching learning process. The questions have been designed under the five categories. These categories are organisation, presentation, class room management, assessment process and teachers' perception of teaching methods used. These categories have been designed to help make the interpretation and explanation of the responses easier.
