Civility in the University Classroom: An Opportunity for Faculty to Set Expectations
Ward, Chris; Yates, Dan
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n2 p165-170 2014
This research examines the types of uncivil behaviors frequently encountered in university classrooms. These behaviors range from walking in late to class, texting in class, and/or unprofessional emails. These behaviors can often undermine a professor's teaching. Setting reasonable and consistent expectations is a combination of university policy, faculty enforcement, and possibly even input from students. While it is understood that we live in a digitally connected world, there is an opportunity for professors to exhibit and reinforce professional behavior that students will be expected to demonstrate in the workplace.
