Without You None of This Would Have Happened: A Consideration of University Teaching
Esteban Bara, Francisco
Teaching in Higher Education, v19 n7 p747-757 2014
Teaching in university has been widely debated in the past few years. However, this issue should not be limited solely to psychological and pedagogical matters. This paper examines university teaching in terms of its relational and human dimension which, as we would expect, also has an important impact on learning and student development. The communitarian critique of the principles of liberalism stresses the importance of this dimension of the teaching task and raises questions that need to be addressed in order to ensure that a university continues to be a unique life experience and an important social institution.
