While many books focus on the broader, socially ethical topics of widening participation and promoting equal opportunities, this text focuses specifically on the lecturer's professional responsibilities. It covers everyday, real-life moral dilemmas which confront university teachers when dealing with students and colleagues - whether arising from facilitated discussion in the classroom, deciding whether it is fair to extend a deadline, investigating suspected plagiarism or dealing with complaints.The author analyses the pros and cons of prescriptive professional codes of practice employed by many universities and proposes the active development of professional virtues over bureaucratic recommendations. The material is presented in a scholarly, yet accessible style, and case examples are used throughout to encourage a practical, reflective approach. The book seeks to bridge the pedagogic gap separating the debate about teaching and learning in higher education from the broader social and ethical environment in which it takes place.show more
