Example text

However, pride, in a professional context, needs to be understood in more positive terms as pride in doing a good job, doing justice to oneself and serving one’s community. Indeed, it is closely connected to the importance placed by emerging professional bodies for university teachers on the notion of ‘scholarship’. This term is invariably connected with the expectation that professionals will at least stay up to date in their disciplinary field. It implies that we should not rest on our laurels but ensure that when we teach we have taken responsibility to ensure that the curriculum is informed by current thinking and recent research.

Generally, students in higher education systems are not legally defined as children and their teachers do not assume the same responsibilities as parents. One effect of this difference is that this places a greater onus of responsibility on students for their own actions while, at the same time, building in higher expectations with respect to confidentiality in, for example, keeping records of academic progress confidential. In practical terms it means that university teachers do not normally discuss the academic progress of students with parents.

This means that some parents may perceive that they have a right to an explanation about the progress of their son or daughter, especially if they are now paying substantial tuition fees. Another significant difference between teaching in the school system and teaching in universities concerns the power of assessment. Universities, by definition, award their own degrees. Universities set their own examinations and this means that lecturers commonly act as teachers and final arbiters of the examination performance of their own students.
