The ethics of higher education practice
Teaching With Integrity seeks to bridge the gap currently separating the debate about teaching and learning in higher education from the broader social and ethical environment in which it takes place.
It provides practical advice on the real-life, messy moral dilemmas that confront university teachers on a daily basis. Such instances might include difficult relationships with colleagues or students, a decision over whether or not to extend a deadline, investigating suspected plagiarism or dealing with a complaint. Written in a scholarly yet accessible style, the book features illuminating case examples to encourage a practical, reflective approach.
The book also explores the wider debate surrounding moral integrity and how it should be maintained in the HE sector, analysing the pros and cons of a prescriptive professional code of conduct and ultimately putting the case for active development of professional virtues over bureaucratic recommendations.
Whether you are an HE lecturer requiring guidance on tackling an ethical dilemma or an HE manager looking for an insight into how best to maintain moral integrity within HE practice, this book will be required reading.
